Perfect Fit

The Holstein 2-star violin bow is absolutely great! The bow is balanced, comfortable to hold and beautifully made. I'm very satisfied with the bow and the top-notch customer service I received.

Great Bow at a good price

I am very happy with the overall quality of the Holstein 2-star bow. It is balanced and very responsive from tip to frog.

Very nice bow!

I am really happy with this bow. It was a huge step up from my carbon fiber bow and it feels, sounds, and looks great!

Holstein 2 star Pernambuco Violin Bow

The overall experience was good. Service good, etc. Packaging was amazing. I don't know if this will be helpful to anyone. It would be disingenuous to give a rave review when I know so little. I have little in the way of experience to cite in reference to opinions about bows. I'm an old person, self taught re fiddle, using several online sources to help. This bow is definitely, absolutely far better than the other two I have. One is a very old 3/4 bow someone was about to throw away. It actually still plays OK. The other is a Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber bow I found on Amazon before I found the Fiddlerman web site. (It is the $70 version available a few years ago. It could use a rehair now.) I thought it was good until I got this one. It took me some time to get used to this one, but now the difference in tone is obvious. Unfortunately, I can't say it helped my playing, even though it produces better tone. I might have liked it better if it were two grams lighter. It weighs in right at 62 grams and especially at first seemed noticeably heavier than the FM CF bow, which weighs in at 60 grams. Now that I've used it a lot, I don't notice its weight and it is feels better, responds better, is easier to handle playing faster, etc., even though their balance point is about the same. I may decided I like it better than a lighter bow, but of course I don't have an equally good lighter bow to compare directly. I think I must like it pretty much compared to the others I have because I no longer feel any temptation to switch back and forth to compare. I could have ordered several to compare on trial, but I think for someone at my self taught level, it was best to buy a decent bow and play it for a while before trying something else. Otherwise the confusion would have been overwhelming. I will eventually try something else out of curiosity, in a couple of years. FYI, I'm playing an unlabeled probably late 1800's "trade" fiddle (my grandfathers, of course) which I finally found someone to repair (however questionably), and a modern "advanced student" level Chinese fiddle that I bought new locally. This bow makes them both sound better.

Holstein 2-star Pernambuco Violin Bow and order

I am very pleased with this new violin bow. Very impressive sound and it weighs only 57 gms! What a pleasure to play with! Fiddlershop contacted me regarding advice on shipping which was good to know as well. I appreciated that extra level of customer service. Well done!
