Very good bow
My daughter loves it very much.
I have found my magic wand!
My bow collection started with the Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow, which was great for a beginner. As I’ve grown in my playing I moved up to a Coda Bow Diamond NX. Then I tried the JonPaul fusion bow, which is a nice hybrid of wood and carbon fiber. I have loved carbon fiber for my electric, but have been pining for a quality pernambuco to go with my new Red Mendelssohn violin and finally took the plunge—and I am in love! A quality instrument paired with a quality bow like the Holstein 3-star pernambuco bow makes playing an absolute joy!
I don’t know yet
I have 6 bows now, each more expensive than the prior one. Since I’m not good enough at the violin, it is too early for me to make a qualifying judgment due to my lack of experience. I bought my final bow-the 3 star Permanbuco to grow into. Also the fact that permanbuco wood may be extinct in a matter of years. Maybe my carbon fiber bow or my hybrid bow is better. I don’t know yet.
Lightweight, controllable, precise. This is a very good bow, comparable to others with higher price. True pernambuco which helps with tone and adds warmth without killing trebles.
I got this bow today. I love it. It sounds good and it plays like it is like an extension of myself. I can play songs much more easily on this that the one star bow. I have owned about 6 bows total, though I have played dozens, so I wouldn’t consider myself an expert. However, it is my favorite so far. Fiddlershop performed great customer service and shipping also.
