Sandalwood is not just for incense

I really happy making the step up to this bow from a carbon fiber bow. There is definitely a clearer tone and easier to control value to this bow. The weight and shape of the bow has made my long bowing clear and pleasant and control more obvious enough to correct my bouncing bow problems. Bow is so well made I would not know what kind of wood it was and the finish is also well done. Get one of these bows it’s a great way to want to play your fiddle even more.

Kid's teacher from Juilliard likes the bow

Sandalwood Bow

I was gifted this bow, and since I was coming from your run of the mill carbon fiber bow, I must say the difference is incredible! After rosining the bow up, I got out my violin and started playing a few excerpts from some intermediate pieces and the sound that the bow could make were sounds I didn't even know were possible from my violin. I am insanely in love with this bow!

Perfect bow

After I fell in love with Fiddlerman Artist Violin outfit. I was searching for better and reasonable price bow. I emailed Customer Service and asked for recommendation. The manager, Clare recommended Holstein Sandlewood. So I order one, it plays beautiful and perfectly together with the Fiddlerman Artist Violin. It’s soft, smooth and sweet I can’t describe. Thank you Clare, thank you all at Fiddlerman Shop!
