Smooth and good tone, only problem is screw is really hard to turn for tightening the bow

Lovely, light and smooth

I received the bow about a week ago and I can say it's absolutely lovely. My teachers all loved it too. It's very light and silky smooth. It's so smooth it's hard to make it scratch. For styles where I need some scratching (tango, mainly) I use a Coda NX. For all the rest I'm using this bow. It's particularly great for double-stops, where roughness is common. The hardware is also as beautiful as the pictures show, with a decorated screw and a super big eye. The bow is kind of redish, in case that's important to anyone :) All things considered, it was a great buy. It is undoubtedly an incredible bow and because of that an incredible value. Compared to the NX, it's a little lighter, a little thinner and a lot smoother. I would recommend it to anyone, no doubt.

Very Nice Bow

I've had the bow for a couple of weeks now, and feel comfortable reviewing it. It is well crafted, straight, with good camber, and great balance. I now have 3 bows in the $400-800 price range. The 3-Star Holstein compares very well to my Hermann Luger Pernambuco bow that I paid closer to $800 for a few years ago, and is perhaps a bit easier to play with but without quite as much projection. I have two violins; a 2014 Ming Jiang Zhu 916 made just before Ming died, and a 1942 Wilkanowski that I inherited. This bow sounds great on both instruments, but particularly makes the older violin sound better than ever. I highly recommend this bow.

So, after playing

So, after playing violin for over 3 decades, the chance is you will collect a bow or two. And I thought, this Pernambuco is really priced well, so why not? And I am very glad that I got this Holstein 3-star violin bow. It is the BEST, most balanced and easy to play Pernambuco I've had so far! Several years ago, I bought a more expensive bow that doesn't even compare to the performance of Holstein 3-star violin bow. It really improves my play and much more than that, I really enjoy playing my violin now thanks to Holstein 3-star Pernambuco! Thank you Fiddlershop for the quality violin bow! Just like other people said it in this review, don't think twice. Just get it! You'll love it!
