Ergonomic frog and button
In order to perfectly meet your needs, we are constantly developing and optimizing our bows. Thus we have worked out a modern, ergonomic design for the frog and the button (that's the little grip at the end of the stick) of our Müsing bows. This new design makes holding and handling the bow a bit easier and more comfortable.
The Müsing C3 und C4 bows are available both either with a modern or a classical frog. Depending on where you position your thumb, one of the two could be more comfortable.
Modern style frog and button
We pulled up the inner edge of the frog (next to the thumb leather) and made it slightly longer. If you, like most musicians, place your thumb in front of the frog and on the thumb leather, this modern design is particularly comfortable because it increases the contact area between your thumb and the frog.
In addition, the star-shaped, five-winged button provides a surprisingly better grip when tightening and relaxing the bow. While with the classic octagonal button you might slip off from time to time, especially with sweaty hands or with bows that are difficult to tighten, like a cello bow, this modern design makes it super easy to tighten.
The modern style frog and button is available on all C3 and C4 models. The C4 also has a beautiful snakewood frog.
Classic style frog and button
Of course, all Müsing bows are also available with the usual classic frog and button.
The lower edge of the classic frog is more comfortable especially for those who place their thumb inside the frog, on the edge of the so-called "throat". The rather rounded edge conveys good grip without pressing.
The beautiful one-piece button has a traditional octagonal shape, as you might know it from conventional bows.
