Viola bows

Unfortunately, definitively identified original-state viola bows are very rare. This poses the question as to whether it was usual to make bows specially for the viola or whether slightly heavier violin bows were used.

I have made replicas of a few original bows. I have adapted many of my violin bows for the viola, which has proven successful.
