We hand make all our adjustable horsehair bows out of Maple, Cherry, and Walnut. We offer all three options in our store, so choose whichever one matches beautifully with your psaltery. This bow is our "long" option, measuring appx. 17.5" in length. We also occasionally have some bows made out of various exotic woods (call or email for availability.) The tension of the horsehair is adjustable with a violin-type peg.
Some folks prefer a bow a little longer than our "regular" length, so we made a longer version!
