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.

Fantastic bow

This is a great quality bow and it exceeds my expectations at this price point; excellent value. It's the first pernambuco bow I've owned. It's beautifully crafted, packaged well, was shipped to me quickly and most of all, gets the best sound out of a student/intermediate violin I've owned for 25+ years. I have always played the one that came with the violin, then picked up a few student level brazilwood ones over the years. I've gone back to playing daily and felt my bows were letting me down and no longer matching my skills. My violin actually sounds better with this bow (obviously..). I've always known better quality equipment impacts sound but never really cared since I play for my own joy and not professionally. It pairs well with the Peter Infeld pie strings I have on the violin. I often change bows during practice and always find my self eager to go back to this bow as the violin has the best projection and sound. This is a great investment if you're in the market for a new bow and at this price point, you won't be disappointed. Bonus: it came with a really nice satin cover. I'd buy it again without hesitation.
