    Hello there,

    So I get this weird jump of the bow. Like a vibration of the wood up and down. I’m sure it has something to do with my bow grip. I tried many ways. I get the same thing.
    Is it because of my applied pressure is not enough?

    If the bow hair is too tight I know that you can get this problems, check if your bow is like this bow you should release some tension. Also for the bow grip this video helped me lot : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_hGdGVruH8

    Hi all! The bow stick bouncing could be caused by many things. In fact, it is literally MADE to bounce. So it’s no surprise that this is happening. But it would be very difficult to give you a reason why it’s happening without seeing it. Rarely would I recommend simply applying more pressure to get rid of bouncing bow stick. I wrote a fairly detailed post about how to hold the bow. I will post a link here and you can see if you’re bow grip has something to do with the problem.

    @masterpg thanks for the info. I think I sometimes get my hair very tight indeed. Not as tight as you show in the picture though. When I don’t tighten it as much the wooden part of the bow will slide of the string, I feel that’s not okay cuz it will hold the string from vibrating. That’s why I tighten it.

    @Dianne I’ve read through your post. I will try to implement it in today’s practice session. Thanks for the info. 🙂

    Some thing that may help is not holding your bow totally flat on the strings try holding at a bit of an angle on the strings where the part that is not touching is facing you
