Holstein 1-star Pernambuco Viola Bow Review
The Importance of a Great Violin Bow
What does B-stock mean?
A bow is considered "B-stock" if it has a cosmetic imperfection, such as a small nick, knot in the wood, stamp misprint, loose winding, or if the stick has a very slight curve that will not affect tone production. Each bow has been carefully vetted to be sold as “B-stock” and is a great value at the discounted price.
There is a limited stock of these bows, and each bow may have a different imperfection. Please review the last picture on this listing for examples of bows considered B-stock.
