Great Bow

Amazing bow it made a world of a difference. Definitely a step up from the bow that came with my violin.

A Noticeable Improvement

In short, a significant improvement over the Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow at a great price. I play on a Fiddlerman Artist violin that came equipped with a Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow. The carbon fiber bow is great but I arrived at a point where I felt that the bow itself was preventing me from improving my playing regardless of how many hours I devoted to improving my bowing technique. Fiddlerman approved an in-home trial and I've been playing with the 1 Star Pernambuco bow for a little over a week now with great results. I've experienced a significant and noticeable difference in my playing and sound. I tried pre-owned pernambuco bows from a local luthier that cost as much or more that did not play this well. I also looked for a bow at local music shops that didn't carry a great selection and did not offer a money back guarantee were I not satisfied. At the end of my search, I came back to the 1 Star and I'm glad I did.

I just received this bow this morning. I rosinnd it. I took it to rehearsal. It is well balanced great response and feel. I'm loveing this bow, Highly recommend this bow.


I had ordered

I had ordered a Holstein Traditional Red Mendelssohn violin from the Fiddlershop - and it was supposed to be "violin only" - but Mike was kind and had offered to include a Fiddlershop carbon fiber bow. However, I opted for buying this 1-star Holstein Pernambuco bow instead. It arrived with my violin a week ago and I've been playing my violin with this bow and with a Maple Leaf carbon fiber bow. The HP bow is lighter in weight, than the MP bow and I've noticed that when I play using the Holstein Pernambuco bow, I get a lighter, brighter sound from my HTRM violin. When I play using the MP bow, I get a slightly deeper, darker tone from my HTRM violin. I really like the sound I get from both bows. I am very pleased with this 1-star Holstein Pernambuco bow and highly recommend it to anyone searching for a wood bow.

I am a

I am a 7-month beginner. I was using an inexpensive carbon fiber bow. This bow is much more enjoyable than my old bow. I am glad I bought it.
