The Importance of a Great Violin Bow:


The importance of a great-quality Pernambuco violin bow cannot be overstated. The bow is a crucial component in a violinist’s list of accessories, as it makes up half of the playing action on these fine instruments. Violinists know that their ability to generate clean, clear notes and perfect tones is only possible with a well-designed violin bow - like our Pernambuco bow. This incredible bow delivers the best cost-to-performance quotient we’ve seen, and it has been used by countless professional violinists who appreciate its perfect camber, exacting tonal qualities, and ideal weight and balance. Each Pernambuco violin bow is crafted of high quality chocolate Pernambuco wood and features a fully-lined sterling silver-mounted ebony frog, sterling silver winding, and a genuine lizard leather grip. The Mongolian soloist horsehair helps deliver perfect tones and ideal playability for all violinist levels.

A Noticeable Improvement

In short, a significant improvement over the Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow at a great price. I play on a Fiddlerman Artist violin that came equipped with a Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow. The carbon fiber bow is great but I arrived at a point where I felt that the bow itself was preventing me from improving my playing regardless of how many hours I devoted to improving my bowing technique. Fiddlerman approved an in-home trial and I've been playing with the 1 Star Pernambuco bow for a little over a week now with great results. I've experienced a significant and noticeable difference in my playing and sound. I tried pre-owned pernambuco bows from a local luthier that cost as much or more that did not play this well. I also looked for a bow at local music shops that didn't carry a great selection and did not offer a money back guarantee were I not satisfied. At the end of my search, I came back to the 1 Star and I'm glad I did.

I had ordered

I had ordered a Holstein Traditional Red Mendelssohn violin from the Fiddlershop - and it was supposed to be "violin only" - but Mike was kind and had offered to include a Fiddlershop carbon fiber bow. However, I opted for buying this 1-star Holstein Pernambuco bow instead. It arrived with my violin a week ago and I've been playing my violin with this bow and with a Maple Leaf carbon fiber bow. The HP bow is lighter in weight, than the MP bow and I've noticed that when I play using the Holstein Pernambuco bow, I get a lighter, brighter sound from my HTRM violin. When I play using the MP bow, I get a slightly deeper, darker tone from my HTRM violin. I really like the sound I get from both bows. I am very pleased with this 1-star Holstein Pernambuco bow and highly recommend it to anyone searching for a wood bow.

I am a 7-month beginner. I was using an inexpensive carbon fiber bow. This bow is much more enjoyable than my old bow. I am glad I bought it.
