Tip Armor Cello Bow Tip

Item Code TA16703

Tip Armor™ Violin bow tips are made of AMW-814, a polymer composite. This polymer has been formulated for strength and flexibility and engineered in a way to allow artisans to work the material with ease utilizing standard carving and bow making tools.

This material bends with finger strength and holds its bow tip curve for application without the typical process of soaking and press-forming. Simply bend the floor to the needed curvature and glue into place. Then shape, sand and carve as you would mammoth ivory or other materials.

Several glues work well including hide glue and superglue (CA glue) which works very well.




Made to industry standard size of .56" ++ width X 1.4" length X .250" ++ head height. Floor is 1 mm + thick. Head is precision milled at a 90 degree or 83 degree angle.
