The bow does well- not my favorite yet- I have various price range of bows and expensive is not always best- one day would love to try one of the real expensive bows-

I already had one and had given a very positive review. Then my wife tried it and she liked it and simply did not want to go back to her old one! What can I say. She kept the first one and I got a new one. This is a very playable bow that greatly enhances our playing experience very cost effectively.

Great Product!

Arrived in good condition and plays beautifully. Definitely worth the price if you're looking for a good quality bow to produce a nice sound.

Definitely worth its price..

I have been using a carbon fiber weave bow, much better than the brazilwood bow from the violin outfit. Although the CF bow seemed nimble, had the proper stick bend and the right balance point, I decided maybe there was something a little better in wood at a higher price point to help me with more intermediate bowing. I'm glad I finally decided to try the Holstein 2-star sandalwood bow. It has the same (correct) balance point and stick bend as my CF bow, but it has an easier feel to facilitate tougher bowing, due to its slightly lighter overall weight and flexibility, iow, not quite as stiff. Only time will tell about its durability and the horsehair, but I'm hoping that when the time comes, this bow can be restrung. Two points to note are that the ornamentation is nice for the price, and the screw tightens and loosens more smoothly than any other bows below its price. A potential caveat though is that the bow, although able to draw a good tone, seems a little subdued in forte, not a bad tradeoff for the money! Thanks as always Fiddlershop for your support, your awesome safety packaging, and the expedient shipping department. Ba Da Dop, don't stop!

Wow, what a difference this bow makes!

As soon as it touched the strings I could hear the notes more clearly. It has great balance and the hair are exceptional. The hair were very smooth across the strings. For now I am a happy camper.
