Would you like teeth on your saw?($7.00 Surcharge)
Should you get a saw with teeth or no teeth...
Close Window

Plus and Minus of having teeth on your Musical Saw

Why you might want teeth:The teeth are purely decorative - they do not impact the music in any way. The reason you may want teeth is to lend authenticity to your instrument. With teeth, it is in fact, a saw, rather than a saw shaped piece of metal with no teeth
Why you might NOT want teeth:
  • You can snag your pants, skirt, or skin on the teeth while playing.
  • Planes are less likely to ask you to check your saw if it doesn't have teeth (But please make sure)
  • No teeth is safer if kids want to try to play.
  • If you intend to play in the subway or on the street, some over zealous police may charge you with having a weapon if it has teeth.
  • Since I have to do additioinal work to cut the teeth, I give you a price break if you do not want teeth.

Baritone Musical Saw

Baritone Musical Saw

Price: $ 58.00

The Baritone Saw is the most popular amongst Musical Saw players. A balance between cost, length, and musical range. Provides a slightly wider range than the Tenor Saw. If you are shorter than 4' 8" or so you may consider purchasing a Tenor saw instead.

My saws are fabricated from material specifically chosen for their musical characteristics. After quite a bit of experimentation I've settled on a saw that will deliver over two octaves. Musical Saws are graded on 4 characteristics and you'll find these saws unexcelled in all four.

  • Volume
  • Sustain
  • Range
  • Timbre

Two differences you will notice right away between these musical saws and other saws are the wider body and how flexible the they are. The wider body aids in increasing the sustain and volume and the flexibility allows you to play over two octaves. Something else I've done is punch a hole at the tip - This allows you to use my "Economy" Tip Handle, which is threaded directly into the saw.

Quadruple Guarantee
  • Try the saw for a week, if you don't like it for any reason, return it for a full refund.
  • I promise you will learn how to play in a week. If you just can't learn to play, return the saw for a full refund.
  • The saw is guaranteed for life (under normal usage) - If it ever breaks, return it for a replacement.
  • Your phone number, email, etc. is your property. I will never sell, trade, give away any information about you.

Bass Bow

Bass Bow

Price: $ 86.05
The Bass bow has a "French" Frog which keeps the hair closer to the stick. This allows one to bear down quite hard on the saw for extra loud notes. The stick is thicker than the cello bow thus you will have to endure essentially no "flex" while playing. - Please note: The picture shows a German frog - The French frog is very similar to a cello bow only substantially wider.

Cheat (Economy)

Cheat (Economy)

Price: $ 7.20
Tip Handles make Saw playing much more pleasureable. No more sore thumbs and wrists, you'll be able to play for hours. The Tip Handle also keeps you from touching the blade, hence skin oil doesn't tarnish the tip.

I carry two cheats
  • Universal
  • Economy (pictured here)

My economy Tip Handle is well under half the price of the Universal Cheat - but it will only work with a saw equipped with a hole punched in the tip. (ALL OF MY SAWS HAVE THIS HOLE). If you will be using a Tip Handle with one of my saws, get this one. It's less than half the price of the Universal and is in fact more robust!
If you need a cheat for a saw purchased elsewhere, please order my Universal Cheat

Musical Saw Microphone Holder

Musical Saw Microphone Holder

Price: $ 24.84

Musical Saw Microphone

Note - in the picture I have included a microphone. - The Microphone does not come with the Mic Holder. You must order that seperately

Here is a picture of me using the saw microphone (actually, the cord goes behind my hand, I was just posing for the picture). Aim the Mic at about a 45° angle. The beauty of this arrangement is that no matter how much you bend the saw, the mic stays relatively close to the blade. More important, you don't have to worry about banging the mic with your saw so you can focus on playing.

The mic has a tendency to pick up bow noise so if you can dial the treble all the way down you will hear just the saw and no bow noise whatsoever.

If you have your own Mic, you may purchase just the bracket and tip handle (Everything except the microphone - you would slip your mic into my mic holder.)

Picking Bow

Picking Bow

Price: $ 42.00
You can produce a huge variety of music/sounds. At it's most basic, you just hold the bow up to the corner of your mouth and strum it. - However, the fun begins when you do the following: Change your mouth cavity, change the tension on the bow, and rattle/stop the string - all to produce a wide variety of interesting rhythms/melodies. - Other tips: play into a metal bowl, play with a cello bow, etc.

What's included: Picking Bow body, Guitar string, violin tuning peg, pick, instructions.
  • 34" long.
  • Made of Cherry or White Oak with Ebony peg.
  • Reinforced Peg hole to prevent splitting.

Incredibly easy to play (even easier than the Musical Saw!) - you'll play it right out of the box.

Rosin
Rosin Price: $ 4.80
This rosin is the cheapest I could find - and will deliver performance every bit as good as any rosin costing many times more.

Rosin

Rosin

Price: $ 4.80
The picture shows my dark rosin (I carry both blond and dark rosins) Honestly, except for color, they are identical and perform equally well. You get what I happen to pull out of the box - unless you tell me to send you a specific one. (and even then, I may be temporarily out of either one.)

The rosins are extra sticky - and quite cheap. For playing the saw, a $20 cake of rosin will deliver no better performance than these. Since saw players go through rosin a lot faster than other string players we want a nice cheap rosin.
