  1. violin bow

    A violin bow is a tool used by violinists to produce sound from the instrument. It consists of a long, slender, flexible shaft or stick, traditionally made of wood but can also be made of synthetic materials like carbon fiber or fiberglass. The stick is strung with horsehair, or sometimes synthetic hair, stretched between its ends. By drawing the bow across the strings of a violin, the violinist causes the strings to vibrate, producing sound. The tension of the bow hair can be adjusted via a screw located at one end of the bow.
