Very responsivesive

I bought this as a second bow and at first I could not tell much difference between it and my pernambuco bow. After doing side by side comparisons over the past few weeks, I do notice that it responds better on short bowing. I also was worried because when it arrived the box had obviously been crushed in shipment. After I examined the bow, I could only find one small indentation on the side of the bow about in the middle. It does not seem to effect the performance of the bow.

Not great.

Sadly this bow was underwhelming. It draws a nice warm tone, but not clear. It's also slow to respond, and you really have to apply pressure to get it to attack. I know this is carbon and wood wrapped but the wood wrapping looks terribly fake. I purchased this to replace my $40 Chinese Ipe bow, but after many hours of comparing, I prefer my Chinese cheap bow. Terribly dissapointing as I've heard good things about the Avanti bow.


Beginner's edge

Even as a beginner, I noticed that I could produce a more plesant sound with the JonPaul Fusion than with my pernambuco bow of a similar price. But what do I know? However, my Russian and Canadian conservatory trained teacher couldn't believe how much bang for my buck I had acquired. She's even seriously considering getting one for herself!


The best bow

The best bow I have owned for the price. Nicely balanced, good sound. Will buy another one.

For the price,

For the price, this may be the best violin bow available. I recently had occasion to compare three bows. This JonPaul Fusion bow I bought from Fiddlerman, and two bows owned by my friends. They are both top of the line Pernambuco Brazilian-made bows. I actually prefer the Fusion. It was just as responsive but most important, it allowed me to pull more volume and power out of my lower G and C strings on my 5 string violin than the Pernambuco bows. Quite frankly I find this bow to be the cat's pajamas. You won't spend a better $194 for a bow. As far as I'm concerned you can add a zero and make it $1940. It's that good. Next up is a Fiddlerman 5 string violin. They are obviously a quality violin shop.
