I received my bow a couple weeks ago and I cannot say Ive used a better bow for a better price. Once you get the rosin to start to stick this bow gives you a chance to play your violin at it’s best. I would recommend this bow from price to quality. My only criticism is that the screw is a little tough to tighten, the quality and pros definitely outweigh this.
I looked around and researched other makers as well as carbon-fiber selections, and I kept coming back to compare them with the Holstein 3-Star. An upgrade was definitely in order from the bow I've had re-haired four times (from a maker that has probably been out of business since 1930) and all roads led to the 3-Star once I weighed the pros and cons across the board. This Holstein is everything that is claims to be, and more, with each return I make to the violin with it. My original bow had different dimensions and weight overall, so I spent the first 10 minutes with the 3-Star re-learning how to hold the bow and how to tighten it properly. Because of its craftsmanship and feel, once I adjusted, I was on my way to making music, and after 70 or so passes through the rosin, I felt as though I had been using this bow comfortably for months rather than hours. Besides being sold on the functional aspects of the 3-Star and the warm music it projects, I was also very, very impressed with the rich finish of the wood and the beautiful inlays set into it. I ordered the 3-Star as part of an outfit together with a new case and a stunning violin, so now I feel like a proud parent stopped silent when asked which of one of the three children I like the most. I'm very happy with the choice I made on this particular bow and I'll recommend it to everyone looking for quality and fine craftsmanship.
The Holstein 3-Star Pernambuco Bow is a great addition to my instruments and is well worth the purchase price.
My order was strictly online but the response was almost instant and the bow itself is such a comfort and joy to play with. Very easy to handle producing great sound. Would highly recommend.
Clear and big sound. Thank you this is a well done bow.
