How to hold the bow of the double bass

The bow holding of the double bass is roughly divided into two categories: "fist holding" and "finger pinching". Each category also contains two bow holding methods. Therefore, there are four kinds of bow holding methods. In the beginning, the double bass bow was held with the palm of the hand facing inwards. It was held in a holding fist style. This bowing method is mostly used in Germany and Austria and other countries. It is customarily collectively referred to as the German bow or the big bow {because the tail box is wide}. German bows are divided into Dragonety and Simandel. Hou Lei in France. People lowered the height of the ponytail box. The cello holding bow method was adopted. But the thumb was placed under the ponytail box. This method was called French bow or small bow. Italy changed the French bowing method to the thumb. Place it under the bow. It is exactly like a cello to hold the bow. This method is the Italian bow or the inner pinch bow. Also called the Portsini bow.

 

1. Dragoneti style: Place the first-third joint of the right thumb on the bow bar. The palm of the index finger, middle finger, and ring finger is loosely attached to the ponytail box. The little finger is placed on the section with nails. On the plane where the metal hoop of the horsetail box faces downwards, the screw handle of the bow rod is placed exactly at the joint of the index finger, close to the joint. Use your thumb and middle finger to control the bow. Use your little finger to support the bow and stabilize the direction. Use your thumb and little finger to hold the bow like pliers. The right hand forms a hollow arch. It encloses the arch seat. It adjusts and bears the weight from the arm and shoulder like a spring. Just like when a person is standing, the arm is naturally drooping. The relaxed state of the hand is naturally curved and solitary. This state is the shape of the hand holding the bow. The predecessor double bass master Dragoneti and the outstanding double bass educator. Player Fenderson used this bowing method.


2. Simander type: It has a ponytail box with a large space between the bow hair and the bow rod. Enclose the ponytail box with the palm of your hand. Make the ponytail box firmly attached to the palm of your hand. The screw handle of the bow rod is placed in the recess under the thumb.. This is the most obvious difference between Simandelian and Dragoneti. This bowing hand shape is the same as the hand shape when holding a pencil. Professor of the Vienna Conservatory of Music. The famous player Simandel, President of the International Double Bass Association Walter, and the best double bass soloist Karl of this century all use this bowing method. The German bow holding method maintains the natural posture of the human body. The bow rod and the straight arm form a double right angle. The bow is carried out in a normal and natural state. The force used comes from the shoulder muscles and the spine of the back. The rotation of the arm during the bow makes the bow hair effective." "Deep" into the strings. The sound is strong and powerful. At the same time, it also eliminates the factors of easy fatigue.


3. French bow-holding method: the inner side of the anterior finger belly of the first joint of the thumb is placed on the plane under the ponytail box. The other four fingers are naturally bent on the bow rod with the part between the first joint and the second joint. The middle finger and the thumb are positioned opposite each other. The right arm is stretched flat. The hand droops naturally from the wrist. It is in a relaxed state. The bow grip starts from this posture. The power generated by the hand comes from the natural weight of the arms and shoulders, and then is redistributed to the front or back of the bow. The American double bass educator and performer Dezen Juliad Conservatory of Music double bass professor Mensh uses this bowing method.


4. Italian bowing method: also known as Portsini style. It is different from French bowing method in that the thumb is not placed on the ponytail. The distance between the thumb and the middle finger is larger. French. Italian bowing pays more attention to clear pronunciation, beautiful tone and skill. French. Italian bowing is mostly used in France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and other countries; and in some Nordic countries such as Germany, Austria, the United States and the former Soviet Union. The German bow holding method is adopted. In our country, these types of bow holding methods are available.



What is the difference between the two styles of the double bass bow?

Generally, there is only one style of large and medium violin bows. They are all traditional French bow styles, while the double bass bow is quite special. There are two styles, one is called French style, and the other is called French style. Called German style (pictured).


The French-style double bass bow is like an enlarged cello bow, while the German-style bass bow has a slightly different shape and structure from the bow head and the ponytail. The German-style bow looks a bit like the old-style Baroque bow. Because the height of the ponytail is more than one-half of the French bow, the German double bass bow has a larger space between the shaft and the bow hair, and the size is slightly longer than the French bow, and the overall weight is slightly heavier.



Due to the different structures of the two bows, their playing methods are also very different. They have different bow holding methods. The German bow holds the back of the bow, while the French bow holds the back of the bow. Since the double bass was evolved from De Gamba in the Baroque period, the German bow will be closer to its original matching Baroque bow. Therefore, some people think that the mainstream large bass bow is still German. The main type of bow.


In addition, the German-style bow can provide more uniform force and is more comfortable to use in the band. However, some people think that the idea of using a bow in a band is wrong, because nowadays, both solo and band have people using two styles of bows.


Which style of bow the performers use depends mainly on the way they learn and teach. Dating back to half a century ago, due to the lack of faculty, the bass performance teachers of some colleges and universities were transferred from cello teachers to teach, and some professional orchestras also allowed some cello players to switch to la bass when expanding the band structure. Naturally, I chose the French bass bow.


As far as we know, some double bass players can accept and use two different styles of double bass bows. But generally speaking, Chinese professional orchestra performers and students from professional colleges are increasingly choosing German bass bows.
