Accessory…no, necessity! Without one you are Senza Arco and on the Pizz! All string players require spare or replacement bows due to breakages and hair loss (like me!). More often than not, rehairing a bow is not financially viable. Especially when it is cheaper to actually buy a new one. If Robin Hood had used Forenza Bows, Richard the Lionheart wouldn’t have been such a problem!

The Forenza Violin Bows are a very popular, well made and hand-crafted model. Crafted from high quality Brazil wood, featuring natural horsehair and ebony frog. This makes the bow very comfortable to hold and perform with.

A violin bow perfect for the beginner/student who is used to the weight of a wooden bow and still wants great quality on a budget. The Forenza range is ideal, a classic look as well as a reliable tension mechanism. A horse hair  bow gives the right amount of resistance while playing. Available in Full size, 3/4, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8th sizes.

If you are searching for a great quality Viola bow, I should say, “Voilà”, you have found it!

Forenza Viola bows, available for either 12-13” or 14-16” length Violas, are built to the same high standard as the above Violin models.

Selected Brazil wood, inlaid ebony frog and natural horsehair all combined to give an excellent and reliable response and articulation.

celloCello

The Forenza Cello bows are perfect as a replacement bow for any brand of Cello. Designed especially for students, younger players, beginners and clumsy cellists!

The range of cello bows are available in the following sizes; 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and Full Size. Continuing with Forenza’s ethos of affordable, yet outstanding quality of bow making, their cello bows are excellent.

Carefully selected Brazil wood and horsehair result in a consistent performance. The lighter the bow the more manoeuvrability, however a slightly heavy bow can assist in producing more sound. Designed ‘to offer the best of both worlds’ to produce a great sound without tiring.

Crafted from top quality Brazilwood, the Forenza Double Bass Bow is a perfect replacement or spare. With its ebony frog with double pearled eyes, strong tension mechanism, and the natural horsehair, it will give many hours of quality performance.

As with the majority of Forenza bows, the Double Bass option is available in 1/8, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and Full Size. Bows are a necessity and a vital accessory you can’t do without.

 

Forenza.  You reign supreme.  Take a Bow!
