Welcome to Cat & Bow, the place to find affordable, hand-crafted Baroque violin bows.
Heidi Erbrich, a professional early musician, offers a selection of different hand made bows from her workshop in Spain.
It is suitable for early Italian music and Biber but also works well for Purcell and French 17th century music.
The stick and frog are made from snakewood. The length is 64 cm and it is approximately 36-39 grams.
Bow, frog and button are all made from snakewood.
Length is 68 cm and weight is approx. 49-51 grams.
The other is a bow from around the first half of the 18th century , a “sonata-bow” type. It is longer, but feels just as supple, light and stable and with a very fine feeling of balance. I am therefore very happy with both bows!
I chose one of Heidi’s bows. Through the lightness and quality of the bow my arm and the bow are one!
