Ebony Frog

Why did my violin bow break?

I am a violin playing beginner, and was playing a fairly loud sul ponte upbow when the head of the bow (the bit opposite where you hold it where the bow strings are attacked to the bow again) just snapped clean in half. Is this poor workmanship on the bow, or my fault - I have only owned this violin for 3 days, and have looked after the bow well- the strings de-tensioned after playing, and well rosined. Humidity and temperature fluctuations have also been minimal.

The violin itself is a Stentor Conservatoire, and the bow is described as: Good full mounted wood bow with ebony frog and natural white horsehair.

Thanks for any answers

your bow might have been too tight when you were playing
