Carbon Fiber Bow Review
How strong is the bow?
High quality hand made carbon fiber viola bow with a round stick. Full size. Nicely decorated copper mounted ebony frog. Quality Siberian horse hair. Great balance. Very nice arch with good bounce and action. Carbon fiber bows are dependable and strong. Weighs ~ 70 grams
The Fiddlerman Carbon Fiber Bow has one of the best bow warranties around! We have customized the arch and weight distribution to the likings of Fiddlerman. Both the stick and mechanical parts by the frog are covered for 5 years should anything go wrong. The hair is covered for 3 months and the wood wedge (at the tip) 12 months.

I can't believe what a difference this bow makes for such a low price. I'm a beginner/intermediate player who played for a few years in high school, put it down and just recently picked up the violin again. The ancient student bow I had, after the frog cracking and replacing the frog- when it was never really the same ever again- was in dire need of some replacement. I knew that pretty much anything I got would be better than what I had, but I seriously did not expect such a vast improvement with a $70 bow- I thought you had to spend hundreds to get this quality of sound. While it's of course still a lower level bow, and the construction leaves a little to be desired- the plastic covering over the silver winding and the leather grip feel a bit cheap, which isn't really an issue in my book- the sound is buttery smooth and rich. Would definitely recommend this bow to any lower-level player looking to upgrade from their first stock bow or even to more intermediate players on a budget.
Fiddlerman bows are great!
This is a carbon fiber viola bow for my octave violin. There is no better bow in this price range, maybe not even if you paid two or three times the price. I routinely buy Fiddlerman carbon fiber bows for my outdoor performances. I also bought the Fiddlerman hybrid, and it is even better. Now I ordered a Holstein 3-star, and it should be the best yet.
More negative than positive
The weight is nice, but the bow components are not that good. I have only used it twice but bow hairs are falling out and the grip makes my finger black.
We also received your email and it's normal that two hairs fall out in the beginning. A bow has 150-200 hairs. The leather grip is dyed and can some time give out some color right in the beginning. It doesn't happen often and most times in a humid climate.
Thank you! Great bow for
Thank you! Great bow for the price.
Great second bow.
I have found this bow to be very responsive and easy to use. It feels good in ones hand and it plays very even from frog to tip. I bought it for my second bow and to use when outside, but I have used it for orchestra rehearsals inside often and enjoy using it. I like it much better than my mid-range pernambuco bows and recommend it to anyone needing a good responsive bow without paying a huge amount. I was also pleased with how quickly it arrived after ordering and how protected it was in the delivery package. All around good purchase.
