Double Bass Bow Quiver Buyer’s Guide

We’ve been supplying the trade, retail outlets and the public with our handmade double bass bow quiver in its variations for many years now and they have proved very popular with double bassists all over the world so far. Every one of our quivers is handmade in England, from the finest quality leather, by English craftsmen, using traditional methods.

We sell two different types of double bass bow quiver

The triangular topped bow quiver which sits beside the tailpiece as shown on the left below and the slim more discrete bass bow quiver which sits behind the tailpiece as shown on the left. Both quivers are available in black or brown leather.

How to Choose the Right Quiver for Your Bass

It really is down to a matter of preference. In terms of aesthetics, the slim bass bow quiver is more discreet and is partially hidden by the tailpiece, whereas the triangular topped quiver is fully visible beside the tailpiece. During use, there are a few differences the slim bass bow quiver has a smaller opening for landing the bass bow but it holds the bow better meaning less movement from the bow when it’s in the quiver.

The triangular topped double bass bow quiver has a much larger opening giving really easy landing of the bow, but this also allows the bow more freedom to move whilst in the quiver. The slim quiver is smaller in length at 36cm compared to the triangular topped quiver which is 45.5cm so it will fit smaller double basses better for younger bassists.
