A fabulous bow with great balance and great sound.

Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber pro violin and viola bow review. I’m a Jazz guitar player who started playing violin in college over 40 years ago as a second instrument. Over that time I’ve played and taught violin and viola on and off. While staying home during the Pandemic of 2020 I started playing violin and viola again because I now had extra time on my hands. I was still playing with the carbon fiber student bows I bought 40 years ago so I decided to treat myself to some new bows for me to practice with. I just received the Fiddlerman Pro series violin and viola bows. This review will cover both bows because my impressions are the same for both of them. In the world of high end audio there are multiple debates raging between audiophiles over CDs verses vinyl and tube verses solid state amps. They all sound good, and even though I have my preferences I think the differences are small and it’s the music that matters. The same can be said about carbon fiber bows verses wood bows. They all sound good it’s just a matter of preferences. I’m comparing the Pro series CF bow to my De Marchi Pernambuco bow. One is a tube amp and one is a solid state amp. The De Marchi is warm and thick the Pro series is bright and light. Depending on what sound you want or the demands of the music you might choose one over the other. The De Marchi is a tube amp with warm and complex overtones. The Pro series bow is a crystal clear solid state amp with exact definition in every note. The carbon fiber bows are a bit lighter than the pernambuco bows. With rosin the CF Pro violin bow comes in at 58 grams and the De Marchi at 60 grams. The CF Pro viola bow comes in at 66 grams and the De Marchi comes in at 69 grams. I notice this difference when switching bows but once I start playing they are both comfortable and well balanced. I can’t decide which one I like better I’m just happy to have the two of them in my case. It’s truly an “embarrassment of riches”. Here is a link to an online review:

Great bow!

Love the balance, the physical texture, and very visually appealing. It really brings out the sound out of my viola. The quality is just as good or maybe even better than a similarly priced pernambuco bow!
