Tip Armor® violin/viola bow tip with 90 degree milled head.
Made to industry standard size of .5" width X 1.2" length X .200" ++ head height. Floor is 1 mm + thick. Head is precision milled at a 90 degree angle.
Made of AMW-814, a polymer composite. This recently developed 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.
This is the latest development in violin bow tip technology. These have been developed to solve the need for a highly durable bow tip that can enter international trade because they are made of a polymer rather than a natural material and yet they are sold at a reasonable price. Mid-size international orders ship free - see shipping page for details. These also provide the bow making and repairing community with an extremely durable bow tip that is a time saver for application artisans. Bow makers are finding this material easier to work than the natural materials such as bone and fossil ivory and far easier to work than the plastic and casein based bow tips.
In addition to ease and speed of application is the strength and durability factor. This material is simply as tough as nails and can take a lot of punishment.
