BOW CONTACT-POINT and STRING LANES
I certainly enjoyed watching ARC, ANGLE and V working together as a well leveraged and happy trio.
Everyone now knows about the Bow-Hand, the Bow-Arm Box and String levels.

I asked BRIDGE to teach you about the bow’s contact-point and string lanesHi, BRIDGE! Please tell us more.
Pretty soon you will be bowing your string instrument, but first it is important to learn about the bow’s contact-point on the string.
Default 7
Hello, All! Good to be back.
Much like the location of my fingerboard top hat, the contact made by the bow hair on the strings, remains parallel to the top of the bridge when bowing.
The bow is moved horizontally back and forth when performing down-bows and up-bows, and the bow hair contact on the string must be parallel to the top of the bridge.
Default 11
Pictured to the left, the bow’s contact-point on the string is parallel to the top of the bridge.
Logically, the location that the bow hair makes with the string is called the Contact-Point.
Clear and resonant sounds are produced when the bow is drawn parallel to the bridge.
