Holstein Pernambuco bow
Overall experience was very good. This bow helps me make smoother sounds. It’s hard for me to understand. I can definitely play better than with the Sandalwood one star. Although I did like that one before.
Very Nice Bow!
5 stars for the bow and the purchase experience! My bow arrived A Day Early (!) and packed with care. It was in a very nice fabric sleeve in a box in a plastic cover wrapped in padding inside a sturdy tube. It had no rosin as I had specified. The bow is beautifully crafted with perfect fit and finish. It fits my hand and plays very well. It is properly balanced and I have good control with it. I'm very happy to have found such a nice bow that fit within my budget. And the warranty is a big plus! Thank you Fiddlershop!
I have other bows (one of them carbon fiber), and this bow by far draws out the best resonance from my violin way above my other bows. The quality of the frog, the bindings and grip is excellent, and the hair is good. It has good balance, and less bounce than my other bows. I am very pleased with this bow.
Love This Bow!
Bow came quickly and it was definitely packaged with great care. It is a beautiful bow and has improved the tone and beauty of my Ming Jiang Zhu which was also purchased from Fiddlershop. I am surprised this bow has made such a difference in making my violin ring. It is so smooth and easy to play with, makes practicing fun! Upon opening the bow it seemed much bigger around then my vintage wooden Bausch bow and was heavier which made me a little concerned. I weighed both bows and the new bow was 3 grams heavier but within the specifications. I also have two carbon fiber bows which are about the same weight as the Pernambuco bow. In playing all three bows the Pernambuco is by far the better bow and I am extremely pleased with it. I would definitely recommend this bow to anyone who is looking for an upgrade and I would recommend working with Fiddlershop. The customer service is great. I appreciate that they are willing to take the time to answer any questions or concerns.
I have two older pernambuco bows, but typically played with a hybrid bow prior to purchasing this bow. The first thing I noticed was its perfect balance. The second thing I noticed was the ability to “pull out” notes that I hadn’t heard prior to playing with this bow. The “bounce” is also awesome. After hearing Mark at Fiddlershop play a Bench Cannone with this bow, I just knew I had to have both — an unbeatable combination! I can’t say enough about this bow! Now, for the cons — The problem is that I can’t put it down, which is causing a serious dent in my time to do other things. Purchase it and don’t look back...
