I have just noticed something that may help people that, like me, have a bow bounce problem.

I was practicing today and was having some trouble with bow bounce. With me it's a thing that comes and goes. 

During a break I noticed that there was quite a buildup of rosin on the strings. I do clean my strings periodically so I decided to do it there and then.

When I returned to the practice session the bow bounce stopped.

Is the rosin working on rosin helping to cause the problem. Is the bow hair getting too good a grip on the string and 'letting go' suddenly, causing bounce?dunno

 

More experienced thoughts on this would be great
