Performance better than most

I tested this bow with 3 other bows at roughly the same price point give or take 100$. I don't feel comfortable using permabucco unless it's stained so I know it was sustainably sourced so I wanted to try out the alternatives. I had the opportunity to try out two carbon fiber bows that a friend lent me and a permabucco bow that was a couple hundred more. With the test I was blown away by how comfortable this was and how it out performed the two carbon fiber bows. (My friend grudgingly agreed). The bow might have just been a lucky fit as some individual bows compliment individual violins so I may have just hit the jackpot. The permabbucco bow performed well enough but ultimately I didn't love it the same. The only thing I can say negatively is the frog is having some problems sliding back and forth after a few months of playing but it fits my violin so well I'm just going to live with that (im positive that customer service would exchange it if asked) and see if my local luther can repair that when it's ready to get rehaired.

Wow!

The Holstein 2-star Sandalwood Violin Bow produces a found, full tone for a fraction of the price for a comparable Pernambuco bow. I'm recommending this bow to students who want to upgrade from carbon fiber bows.

Great bow

Standard bow length, 29.5". I have looked at longer bows but found them pricey. On this bow the hair was an inch longer than my old bow. I am 6'6" and that was a pleasant surprise. Plays wonderfully: good balance, good weight, moves well.

Great bow!

Fantastic bow! The first bow they sent me got lost in the mail, and they said they would send me a new bow before I even asked them to. Very kind and professional over the phone. I was previously playing with an ancient R. A. Meinal bow that needs to be rehaired. This bow is much more enjoyable to play. It is hard for me to stop playing now! I would recommend Fiddlershop to any string musician. I can't wait to buy something else from them!
