Not nearly as good as the JonPaul Carrera
I trialed the Codabow Marquise and the JonPaul Carrera. They are about the same price and both weigh 80g. However, like the other Codabows I have tried, due to the balance, it feels heavier than the JonPaul. The JonPaul also had a better tone than the Marquise, although the Marquise does sound better than other Codabows I have tried. Honestly, since this is the 3rd Codabow I have tried, I don't see why they are so popular, vs the JonPaul (and maybe the Arcus, which I have never tried). But, I know there are plenty of Codabow fans, and if you are, this was the best one I have tried.
