These sandalwood bows are frankly amazing for the price. I have both a Holstein yellow sandalwood bow and the open-box green. The Yellow is a little stiffer than the Green, the Green a little more flexible, but both are very well balanced and very well made, and both produce a wonderful wooden-bow tone. I have a 30 year old Meinel one-star pernambuco bow, and both these Holstein sandalwood bows are equal to the Meinel in nuanced tone production, in my experience. I am more a violin maker than accomplished violinist, so these bow reviews are from my experience in trying them with different violins. I couldn't be more pleased with the price range and quality and performance.
Excellent service and prompt shipment. Bow is a backup but would not hesitate to unveil Becker bow were damaged. A few good rosin sessions and it's playing nicely. Thanks. JLC
Excellent Customer Service
I just purchased this bow on sale. For $55 -- curiosity said why not? This bow is better than all 3 carbon fiber bows that I've purchased previously, including the carbon fiber weave and Revelle Raven intermediate ( which by the way, sounds a lot better with Salchow LIGHT amber rosin in Colorado's dry climate. Sound produced is fuller and less harsh on 2 violins and even on a large viola. If I had known it was this much better I would have upgraded -- considering the price. Used Salchow Light amber rosin -- not for sale on this site -- at least not yet. I'm not a skilled player, so I can't speak to response for spiccato etc.
Mike took his time and make me feel at home, they are helpful and welcoming. They have everything you need.
