Find the Balance Point

Find the Balance Point

Balance the bow on your finger to find the point of balance, where the weight is distributed evenly.

Notice this is not the same as dividing the bowhair into two equal halves. Since the nut (heel/frog) of the bow is heavier, the balance point is always closer to the nut than to the point.

Knowing where the balance point is on your bow helps you with various bowing styles, such as spiccato, sautillé and three-note chords....
