Beautiful bow

My experience with Fiddlershop has always been excellent and this was no exception. It arrives in NZ within the week, perfectly packaged and ready to go. My violin was the same. Just so happy! Thank you again.

Nice bow, and especially good service

I just wanted to firstly acknowledge the very good customer service from Fiddlershop when my bow and packaging arrived completely crushed (looked like it was run over a few times). They took care of the delivery insurance claim and sent out another bow right away. Thank you so much for your reassurance and making a bad experience turn into a positive one. The bow itself produces a noticeably purer tone on my violin, as compared to my old (high quality) brazilwood octagonal bow. It is easier to play in general and I noticed the horsehair is quite nice (even compared to my $80 re-hair of my other bow).

I have found my magic wand!

My bow collection started with the Fiddlerman carbon fiber bow, which was great for a beginner. As I’ve grown in my playing I moved up to a Coda Bow Diamond NX. Then I tried the JonPaul fusion bow, which is a nice hybrid of wood and carbon fiber. I have loved carbon fiber for my electric, but have been pining for a quality pernambuco to go with my new Red Mendelssohn violin and finally took the plunge—and I am in love! A quality instrument paired with a quality bow like the Holstein 3-star pernambuco bow makes playing an absolute joy!

I don’t know yet

I have 6 bows now, each more expensive than the prior one. Since I’m not good enough at the violin, it is too early for me to make a qualifying judgment due to my lack of experience. I bought my final bow-the 3 star Permanbuco to grow into. Also the fact that permanbuco wood may be extinct in a matter of years. Maybe my carbon fiber bow or my hybrid bow is better. I don’t know yet.
