Rosin for the musical saw bows. Make your saw really "speak" by ensuring your bow is well coated in rosin. This ensures that the bow grips the edge of the saw and also protects the hairs on the bow ..

Roberts & Lee Parkstone Musical Saw

The Parkstone Melody Saw is available in 3 sizes, 22", 26" and 30" and is made from fully ground carbon steel 80. This specially made saw uses incredibly flexible steel and allows the saw to be played with a bow when placed between the knees.
The saw does have teeth but these are NOT sharpened or set as with normal saws. We also take around 4" of the teeth off from the bottom end of the saw to ensure these do not catch on your clothes whilst playing.

We have recently developed our range of Musical Saws with the assistance of Charles Hindmarsh, The Yorkshire Musical Saw Player and have even got a guide that is available with these saws to help you get started. Our range is intended to cater for beginners and more advanced players with a range of budgets and catered for.

The 22" saw is more of a soprano saw - and the size makes it somewhat easier for children to use
The 26" is a mid range sounding saw
The 30" is a bass saw and is capable of 2 and a half octaves.
The length of the saw changes the depth of the sound.

note range
26 inch saw

30 inch saw

We have two handle options which means we can help keep the cost down for beginners. This saw's original specification as per Roberts & Lee Saws who made these prior to us purchasing this company, has a handle made from American Black Walnut. We have also added a beech handle range (standard handsaw handle shape).

These saws can be played using any bow. Bow not included with saw but are available as a separate option.

We also have a "cheat" available which is the wood attachment often used to help bend the blade. This makes playing much more comfortable as the thumb can tire after playing for a while. Please select this if needed.
