Super Nice Bow

Wonderful bow

This bow far surpasses the carbon fiber bows I've used. It's also an even larger step up from the cheap wooden bows I've used. I would recommend this to anyone, then change in tonal quality is amazing!

Feels great

The bow was packed very well and safely. My first impression when i started taking it out of the box was that it looked gorgeous, even better than the pictures. When i took it out of the box I could tell right away that the weight distribution felt a lot better than the one in my other bows. I’ve been using it for around a month and have been loving it so far. I’m from Europe so I had to pay for the shipping and the import tax but I still think it was worth it.

I absolutely love my new bow. I had the one that came with the outfit but I feel like I am at a point where it simply isn't going to work for the pieces I am working on. I am just a beginner but even I can hear the huge difference. I actually went to the shop and was able to hear different bow options. And this is the one that I chose. Beautiful and wont break the bank as much. All in all, feels great in the hand. Wouldn't go back.

Holstein 1 Pernambuco violin bow

I purchased an Artist violin package that included a carbon fiber bow a little over a year and a half ago. Although I didn’t have anything to compare it to, the carbon fiber bow served me well as the Fiddlershop team suggested. I’ve used it for about a year and a half. I purchased this Pernambuco bow believing I should have a backup and an upgrade. I could feel the difference immediately, this bow is easy to handle with smooth responses. I would recommend this bow. there’s nothing like a nice wooden bow. I must say however I have difficulty fitting both of my bows in my case even though there are spots for bows. The hairs on my bow are getting caught no matter how careful I am .I suppose that’s a different issue. I purchased the level 1 over the others as a good balance between being a beginner intermediate player and a little above a base model with a good price point. Enjoy!
