"My teacher told me there were just 2 things keeping me from becoming a great violinist---my left hand and my right hand"
Introducing the VioGlove
A thrilling new addition to the violin/viola/cello world, the VioGlove is the first glove in history designed to improve every aspect of your left-hand technique. All players know that to perform at the highest level, one must master moving up and down the fingerboard with ease and precision. The VioGlove facilitates this --- and so much more!
Introducing the BowBump
Wrap the BowBump around the 2nd knuckle of your right index finger.
LEAN the stick into the fuller-side edge of the BowBump.
Make optimum contact with the string.
Get the same benefits of the Russian bow grip while using the Franco-Belgian grip.
Now for the 1st time in history, your bow technique can get the benefits of BOTH schools as your bow hand now works as one coordinated unit.
The Russian school has the bow hold held with the index finger in between the 2nd knuckle and the base knuckle. With this grip, all the fingers are very close together.
The Franco-Belgian school has the bow hold held with the index finger in between the 1st and 2nd knuckle. With this grip, the index finger is usually extended a little bit away from the 2nd finger. And the fingers are not necessarily together.
Now, with the modern Franco-Belgian bow hold, as you LEAN the stick into the fuller-side edge of the BowBump, you can hold all your fingers closer together than you normally would, and your bow will not slip away,
And because your fingers are now closer together, the hand is much more coordinated, and working as one unit. The result is much smoother string crossings, more contact with the string, and much more control of all various bow strokes.
