Revelle F.A.Q.


Where can I buy Revelle products?

Please contact us for the dealer nearest to you.


What is the proper way of tightening and loosening my bow?

You should turn the screw of your bow to the right approximately 3-4 complete turns, or until the hair is approximately a finger's width away from the stick. Loosen it in the same fashion, about 3-4 complete turns to the left.


How should I rosin my bow?

First, make sure your rosin, if new, is scratched up on top. If it isn't you can do this with an object like a key, or an untwisted paper clip. When this is done, bow your rosin as you would your violin. You can use certain rhythms you are practicing to assist yourself. Make sure not to rosin too much, or you'll cover your instrument with dust. No more than 10 bow strokes should be necessary.
