The dynamics work in the same way as on a cello, only the volume is different.
As the bvdg has 7 strings, the bridge of the instrument is flatter than on violoncello.


This fact and the right hand position make it easier to play chords, but have an influence on the dynamic level.

If in ƒƒ, the bow pressure on one string is too high, the bow will touch the neighbouring strings. Very loud sound can be produced by playing chords; the dynamic level playing one string must be less.
