I recently bought a fiddlerman hybrid bow and after receiving it I realized it sounded very similar to a less expensive wooden bow I've had for a while so I decided it was time to upgrade and jump to the next level. Cynthia from fiddlershop suggested I try the Holstein (no star) since my budget was $200. This prompted me to take a look at the Holstein line of bows and after years of managing to stay within the $200 or less range for bows I decided to take a leap of faith and purchased the Holstein 3 bow. I recieved it 3 days ago yet only had a chance to try it out today. OMG!!! boy have I been cheating myself for years! So many times I've heard that upgrading your bow can improve your sound but I never thought it could change my playing completely! The bow is lighter than my fiddlerman carbon fiber yet is very "manageable". As cliché as it may sound it's like cutting through butter with a hot knife. The sound it produces smooth and even and crisp. Thanks Cynthia!
Great bow, well balanced & produces a great tone. Very satisfied with this purchase.
My younger son loves it very much. His teacher recommended wooden bow. And I saw this one was already given 5 stars review. So gave it a try. Great pernambuco bow. Fully satisfy. 5 Stars from us as well.
Best bow ever for me
This bow has improved my playing dramatically. I play Bluegrass semi-professionally, and classical for fun. I also play contemporary Praise music each week. I have a Codabow, and several Fiddleman carbon fiber bows. I also have a Fiddlerman hybrid, and it was my favorite until now... wow, it is amazing how good this Holstein 3-star pernambuco bow is. The tone is sweet and pure, and the fast stuff is really easier. I tested all my bows while my wife listened from the next room. She always picked the 3-star, but occasionally confused the Coda with the hybrid (and they are excellent too). So, bottom line, buy it. You will immediately know that you made the right choice.
I love this bow
Great experience. This bow just looks beautiful. It came packaged nicely. Even included a cute violin-shaped bottle opener that I have hung on my keychain just in case a fiddling and beer situation arises. This bow produces a very mellow sound on my very bright fiddle, which is nice. The balance is perfect. I like the weight and feel. I may get my daughter one too when she is ready. For now, she has to stick with a CF bow because she drops it so often.
