Things 4 Strings® accessories, invented by American String Teachers Association honored studio teachers, are teacher designed, tested and approved. Our CelloPhant® bow accessory instantly positions and supports the fingers of the bow hold! The quite a lot of anatomical features of the elephant, such as toenails and legs, allow the cellist to feel reference points, for consistent bow holds from practice to practice. The size of the CelloPhant® accessory allows an open, relaxedhand, and the circle of the elephant’s trunk directs a flexible thumb toward the intersection of the frog and stick, with alternate placements if desired. The bow provides the breath of tone for string players. Whilst cello bow technique varies widely among fine players, all agree a primary focal point of the cello bow hold is lack of tension, and a flexible thumb and fingers. Teachers appreciate the flexible-use design of this accessory, making an allowance for differences of pronation, depending on their own bow technique and student hand size. The accessory comes in handy for all hand sizes, age 3 through Adult. The accessory also is designed to deliberately add a touch of weight to assist beginning players to reach a bit more effortless tone — more tone with which to fall in love! The CelloPhant® accessoryuniquely train the hand to hold the bow appropriately and of course, through muscle memory, thereby freeing the player to be told and enjoy other elements of string playing.
