Psaltery Bow. Made of Solid walnut wood with Mongolian horse hair. It is very light and easy to play with. Rosin for bow is sold separately (item code:VR200).
The Psaltery Bow must be rosined before it can play the strings. Rosin the ends of the hairs first, in short fast strokes, then rosin the full length from end to end. Rotate the rosin cake under the hairs as you drag the bow across. This rotation will maintain a flat surface and prevent a deeply grooved rosin which can damage bow hairs. A properly rosined bow will have rosin powder evenly distributed throughout the hair. Never handle the hair of the bow with your hands. Oils from your skin will leave permanent slick spots that will inhibit retention of the rosin powder. The overall length of the bow is 15 1/4". The length of unsupported hair (draw) is 13 7/8".
Clean your bow with a soft dry cloth after each use. The Roosebeck Microfiber Polishing Cloth is sold separately, and is perfect for cleaning the bow (item code RBSMFPI).
Broken or loose hairs are not uncommon and will not affect the playing characteristics of the bow. If a hair breaks do not to pluck it out. Carefully cut the hair, leaving a little bit at both ends.

that said, i will keep this sorry miserable supposed bow because i used to show dogs and the biggest problem was them all running to other rooms when i got that dreaded shrill "thing"out. you can't get enough sound with this bow to have anything shrill. ok, so i need new resin after having had to put the instrument in storage for 2 years but had my horsehair hairs not just split and wept my resin is still good for what few hairs i have left. and this bow forces me to play quietly until i practice some in my apartment, another issue with a shrill instrument. so i will muddle thru with this after i cut about a third of the strands off so the flat effect will fit centered for the notes and get a new ADJUSTABLE bow for when i get back to real music.
be aware the strands are not adjustable but are glued into each end so you can't back off the tension when resting. also the bow is 14 1/2 inches long NOT 24. it really deserves NO stars.
Hate the packaging, or lack thereof, when they shipped it. It was enclosed in a plastic bag, wrapped in a bit of paper and thrown into a large box. The box got a bit crushed, which caused the taped seam to split open on the box. If the plastic bag had not got stuck to the packing tape on the seam, I suspect I would have received an empty box or a broken bow.
The Roosebeck bow was smaller and has white polyester strings that were not all tightened to the same tension that I was used to using. I suppose you can use scissors to cut-off loose strings??
I tried-out the Roosebeck bow, but went back to the comfortable feeling of my handmade, longer bow.
I returned the Roosebeck Bow to Amazon and had no problems getting a refund.
The Roosebeck bow would be more suitable for beginnig psaltry players. Once you get used to an old-style walnut-bow's size and tone, it may be harder to switch over to factory produced bows. Other customers may enjoy this smaller bow. The price is of Roosebeck Bow is much lower of course than that of a handcrafted wooden and horsehair bow, so some people may want to try the small Roosebeck bow for that reason.
It was in good order when I received it, and with a bit of fumblation on my part, I was able to produce pleasant sounds from the Horse Hair Strings on my Tagleharpa (bowed lyre)
I have seen a lot of comments on the size of this bow, so make sure you understand the size of this bow before you are surprised upon its arrival
I would suggest ordering directly from Roosebeck.
