saw this today.  I know a few have discussed baroque bows here.

 

Id like to see a Hardanger fiddle.  Those seem to be a custom type instrument though and expensive so not holding my breath..

If anyone listening.  one without all the bling. thumbs-uplaugh

@ABitRusty - You are not the only one. That might be a future offering at Fiddlershop. We have a few people working here that desire the same. 😁

@ABitRusty -

Isn't it sacrilegious to own a Hardanger with no bling?! 😉 

I'd love one, except everyone talks about needing to take so much time for tuning... and if string prices keep creeping up...  yep, I still want one - with a BUNCH OF BLING! 🎄🎉

Amazing how such a light weight baroque bow can work!  I was seriously hoping Fiddlershop would restock the baroque snakewood bow with black hair - been eyeing that all year!

TUNING!?  we dont need no stinkin' tunin' 🤣  

😐

I kniw what you mean about the ornate part of them.   seems to be a requirement.  But seems easy enough to leave all that off doesnt it? 

now that you mention the bow i think i remember you sharing something now.

I think I see one of these in my futuresmile   My teacher has one that I tried--the weight balance is definitely different.

I'm learning so much here on the forum. I have a question about Baroque bows, what do the words used in the video about how bowing was different in the 1600's and 1700's mean? Is there a video someone knows of that would teach how to bow in that way?

And does that apply only for classical violinists, or were fiddlers back then using the same baroque style of bow?

@Taryn -

Here's a link to a thread with info about Baroque Bows, how & why to use use them. 

Modern vs Baroque Violin Bow Thread

I've seen several Fiddlers use a Baroque bow for the lively & faster tune playing.

← painting by Nicolas Tournier - A woman playing the violin with two children singing (Baroque bow).

Thought about one myself, still might get one, but I fell in love with a light weight bow from Fiddlershop, it's the modern (Tourte) style - ARCUS P5 octagonal stick, also great for playing lively, faster music!
