I'm a late learner when it comes to the cello. I started when I turned 40. This bow grip was recommended to me by my cello instructor. She let me try hers and so I bought one. The last one I had was the silicone one that went over the bow hand area and had a little niche for your thumb. It was fine, and this one took me some time to get used to it, but my instructor said my bow technique has improved. I would also like to let anyone reading this that the wada grip has some weight to it, so it kind of forces you to balance the bow on the strings. I can't explain it, but my instructor said i sounded better which is always a plus.
I was very surprised with this. It puts your hand in the perfect position for holding the cello bow. I’m a professional cellist and was interested in using this for some of my students even those that have been playing for quite a while but still have very bad bow hand posture. Bravo!!
Money worths spent. Wish I could have purchased it long ago. It helps correct my bow hold and reduce strain not only the right fingers and hand but the entire body. It is all about keeping proper alignment and body mechanics as well as protecting your joints and preventing strains/injuries. Great invention. Being a physical therapist and returning cellist, I would recommend it.
El adaptador WADA puede ser conveniente para alguien con la mano muy pequeña. A mí la elevación que hace, me perjudica y obliga a tensar el pulgar y a arquearlo hacia adentro. Aparte de esto, le genera peso al arco y aunque no lo usé mucho, no creo que sea una compra interesante por ello. Además el pedido me llegó tarde. Eso sí, se instala muy fácil en el arco. Lamentablemente, no lo puedo recomendar. Yo lo he devuelto al proveedor
