Bold and brilliant, the CodaBow JOULE boasts a powerful resonance on the bottom strings and strong projection across all ranges. Unattainable with traditional materials, the innovative design of the shaft adds more mass to critical performance areas while preserving a balanced weight and comfortable flexibility. This unique design allows the bow to grab the string and speak effortlessly whether playing deep whole tones or percussive chops. Particularly well-suited to extended-range and electric instruments, the CodaBow JOULE is the strong favorite for all high-octane performances.

It's better...but why?
I've already had long stretches on the Holstein Yellow Sandalwood bow, and the Fiddlerman Hybrid. I thought this would be fun, since it's aimed at quirky performances or instruments, like my 5-string. And it is lovely! I even had the other two bows re-haired so I could make a fair comparison. And...it's better. Moves more easily, draws a better and more responsive tone out of the C string. It's great. But why? I don't really know. It's the same weight as the Hybrid (60g). Length is 74.9cm to the Hybrid's 74.5cm and the YS 74.1. The big difference, if you can call it that, is the balance being at 27.1cm, to the Hybrid's 26cm and the YS 36.5. It feels very carefully engineered, and my old bows feel very clunky now. =)
I have wanted a Coda
I have wanted a Coda Bow for years. And was dead set on a Diamond. FiddlerShop was the local dealer. Let me tell you about FiddlerShop. From the moment I walked into their new location, I was greeted with the best care. Out came the Coda Bows and well as their own carbon bow. I played all the bows on my violin, listening and feeling how each bow sounded. No pressure, no hurry. Just plenty of time to decide. I left the shop with a new Coda Jules Bow and have made new friends in the string world. Just wished they lived closer cause I would be asking for a job there. Simply the best of the best!
As always great customer service.
