Pernambuco Bow

what is a violin bow made of?

The very cheapest bows that come with the violins under $100 are made from Cherry wood or some other wood that "looks" like the same wood that real bows are made from.

The next level is either Fibergalss or Brazilwood. Brazilwood bows start around $20 and go up to over $300. Fiberglass bows are in the $35-75 range.

Pernambuco bows start under $200 and go into the thousands as do Composite bows which are made from a number of different things like Graphite and Carbon Fiber.

The best Brazilwood bows can be better than the cheapest Pernambuco bows.

Composite bows favor very well against wood bow in their same price category with the added advantage that they are much more durable,

Of course the "hair" is horsehair from the tail of the horse although there is still one company at least that makes an artificial fiberglass form of hair, it is not anywhere near as good. Horsehair comes in different qualities and should never be bleached.

The frog on the bow, the part that you hold, is made from Ebony, Bone, composite materials (Ivory and Tortoise shell on old bows). The metals are nickel silver, German silver or gold depending on the bows quality.
