Aloha everyone,

I really like going to IMSLP and came across the Theoretical and practical treatise on the Violoncello.  I took a screen grab of some of the terminology and came away confused by their definitions of the ends of the bow.  Can anyone else speak to its accuracy?  I would think the ones used for a violin bow would be the same, eg., tip and frog.  They introduce point and heel, respectively.  This was originally published in 1922, so the terminology may have changed, or the cello may have had the terminology all the same.  I thought it was interesting, none the less.Screen-Shot-2015-09-17-at-09.22.16.pngImage Enlarger

I don't play cello, but am learning violin, and I was wondering if that's what those little V things meant, lol. I kept meaning to ask my teacher, or google it, but kept forgetting. Thanks for posting this 🙂
