Try altering the angle of attack and pressure applied? I don't know. But that was a specific example we were given in our physics class a year ago or so 🙂 The correct answer at the time was to increase friction by pushing down more, and changing the angle of which the bow moved 🙂

I just got a lighter bow and the bouncy went away. It has happened once or twice since, generally at the top end of the bow. I think it was happening because my weak and inexperienced bow arm wasn't keeping constant speed/pressure.

I made a video for some members that were having the same problem. The tension in the wrist builds as you approach the tip. I'll try to find it later. Have to run soon to play string quintet.

That's what I was trying to explain. More practice and stronger wrist ftw! Would explain why a lighter bow makes it easier as well.

I used to get the broom banging on the ceiling from an old lady that lived under us in an apartment in Gavle Sweden. ROFL

LOL,

Actually I was a little well known in that little city. I was the alternate concertmaster and the local newspaper made a great big full page story on me that said something like "The Concertmaster is a Grillmaster" and a giant picture of me with my apron.....

They bought all the stuff I wanted them to, tased my food, and wrote my tips about doing a real American BBQ exactlyThe old lady knew who I was but she was in her 80's and a real pain in the rear.
