Arcus experience for much less money...

I have been playing with an Arcus bow for the last 3 years, it becomes my principal bow and took of the best sound of my violin, even when I was satisfied with the bow, sometimes I felt not a complete control, missing a good attack on the tip. This Fiddlerman Pro Series Violin Bow (carbon fiber) give me some extra attack and much more control. I love the sound and the feeling! Thank you Fiddlershop for a wonderful bow!

I’m likely to sell my other bows and play exclusively with the Fiddlerman Pro series

I absolutely LOVE your videos and really appreciate all of your insight. I have recently gone through a six month, or more realistically 8 month, search for a violin bow. I too love the Fiddlershop; their staff is second to none! I trialed a Müsing C3 and C4, a Glasser X braided carbon fiber, and a Helisson Cyrillio 2 Star pernambuco. Conclusion: more undecided than before the trial! Although I returned all four bows and continued using the ancient Glasser bow that came with my first violin, I did find that I certainly wasn’t interested in a Glasser bow or a C3. The difficulty herein lies with a personal choice. Did I want the ease of playing with the Müsing (which I might add is not an inexpensive bow and three times what my violin cost) or did I want the beautiful overtones and warmth of the pernambuco bow. I’ve since bought a new Chinese made violin, but with European tone wood. You talk about a powerful and crisp tone. My instructor tells me that I won’t be able to get by with any sort of mistake with this violin, and I really appreciate that level of clarity. Fast forward to Black Friday and on a whim I buy a Fiddlerman hybrid carbon fiber bow, wrapped in pernambuco. HOW VERY IMPRESSIVE! Agile, responsive, beautiful tone. I’ve made excellent stride in my technique since then. All of this thought comes from your reading your most recent email about the Müsing bows. I loved their ease of playability and can appreciate that they are a more cost-effective answer to the Arcus bow. Although I’d give a kidney to be able to spend the money on an Arcus p7 or p8, it’s just not justifiable for me, a hobbyist, at the present time. Enter the Fiddlerman for the rescue, again. On either the second or third batch (I was told they sold out QUICKLY the first few orders they had) I was able to buy the new Fiddlerman Pro Series Carbon Fiber bow. I’m going to use the word impressive again because there simply isn’t a better adjective to describe this bow. Around 54 grams and with precision balance, I cannot praise this bow enough. I’m likely to sell my other bows and play exclusively with the Fiddlerman Pro series. This, coupled with an insanely modest price, makes the bow an obvious choice for those of us who want the quality of a great bow, the durability of carbon fiber, the strength and maneuverability, and the price tag to match our growing technical ability.

Much more than I expected

This is an outstanding bow that heightens my enjoyment of the violin. It draws a beautiful sound from my instrument in a way that seems practically effortless. Compared to my previous carbon fiber bow, which was of a high quality, this bow is lighter and stiffer, which enables me to maintain contact with the strings deeper into the camber during fast transitions. The end result is less motion is needed to produce the same sound, which is highly gratifying. The bow can also be adjusted with less clearance from the hair, further enhancing the level of control. I’m actually astonished at the improvement, and the price of this bow in today’s market makes the choice very easy. The Fiddlershop staff were accommodating in helping me find exactly the right bow for me, and I am very satisfied with my purchase.

A greqt foray into the world of professional bows

I am a new violin player. I have the fiddlerman carbon fiber bow, the sandalwood bow, and a few others around that price. I have used them all but weirdly I wound up using a slightly smaller size antique bow. Which handled amazing and pulled the most rich sound from my violin. When I picked up the fiddlerman pro It was one of those moments where you didnt realize how handicapped you were before. I played some pieces I am learning. Articulation was effortless. I was able to play it twice as fast with total accuracy especially off the string. It felt like I was playing a finely tunes sports car and the others were like playing a sloppy joe. Although my smaller bow was less sloppy then the first two bows mentioned. The only downside is that I noticed the tone of the fiddlerman pro, and the richness is nowhere near the rich loud tone I can create with my smaller wood antique. So I still have a use for my older bow. The accuracy however of the pro is however unrivaled. I can jump from string to string and stick the landing each time. So I feel I made a good purchase. Both bows will be in my case. I Feel like the FMP is going to be there to teach me what a real bow should feel like and train me into the next level of techniques. I was able to sautilee and spicatto with ease. The bow wanted to. The others are for all intents and purposes all but impossible to do this with ease for me. The tone is nice when I don't try to dig in and pull super loud rich tones from my G string which my other smallerone does with ease. My ideal bow has both of these characteristics. Light, rich, and accuracte. FMP bow has two of them. Is this my forever bow? No. Will it be growing with me for a long time, and it is going to be with me until I am ready for what lies beyond. Absolutely. I am excited for what is to come. Thanks fiddlerman.

Fiddlerman Pro Series Violin Bow

I have only been playing fiddle for a short period of time. However, the fiddle that I am learning on is an excellent, professional quality, violin. The bow I was using was a 'highly rated' under $50 carbon fiber bow that I purchased from Amazon. It served me well to start with, but, as my skills increased, it began to feel flabby and imprecise. My problem is that I live in a cabin on a lake in British Columbia, Canada and there is no 'Violin' specialty store within miles of my location. I did a lot of research on the web and, based on user reviews and professional review ratings, decided that I would purchase either the Fiddlerman Pro Series bow, or a Diamond Series Codabow. I am not in the habit of buying musical instruments by mail, especially when I am purchasing a quality instrument. However, in this case, I really had no alternative. After exchanging emails with the Fiddlerman staff, I decided, with a great deal of trepidation, to take a chance on the Fiddlerman Pro Bow. The bow arrived this morning. Arranging the purchase through the Fiddlerman site was simple and quick. The bow arrived one week after I ordered it, and it was delivered to my door. The packaging was great. There was no worry that the bow had been, or could be, damaged in transit. I have been playing the bow for a few hours and I can only say that I feel I made the correct choice with the Fiddlerman Pro. It is light. It tracks like a dream. It is stiff enough to provide excellent action on the strings, yet easy to control. The violin sounds like a different instrument. I was very pleased with the sound using my old bow, but with this Fiddlerman bow, it sounds significantly better. The high 'E' string has come alive. I can't express the improvement playing high legato notes. It is like a completely different instrument. I was having some issues with 'Hokum bowing' getting the high notes balanced and clear when compared with the low notes. That problem is gone. The 'shufffle' patterns are now effortless and clearly articulated. I am not a professional player, but I highly recommend both this bow, and using the Fiddlerman web site . . . especially if you are reliant on distance purchases like I am. I would not hesitate to purchase a high quality instrument from Fiddlerman and trust their recommendations, their setup, and their quality control.
