Holstein 3-star Pernambuco Violin Bow Review:

The Importance of a Great Violin Bow:

Holstein Bow Family

The bows in the Holstein Pernambuco family are all made from select quality Pernambuco wood and in the tradition of the great French makers. Every step up comes in a higher quality selection of wood and workmanship. 

After traveling and testing hundreds of bows, we have found our favorite dollar-to-dollar value Pernambuco bows. Countless professionals are trading in for our bows.

All Holstein bows are inspected by our in-house luthier with over 20+ years of experience in professional bow making. The bows come with 100% satisfaction guarantee and our incredible Holstein bow warranty.

New "Maline" style frog

The Maline style bow is a new variation on our Holstein 3-Star pernambuco bow. It has the same feel and sound as the original 3-Star bow, but the aesthetics around the frog are different. The frog has a rounded shape, as well as a groove carved into the stick where the frog is attached.

Nice bow and good transaction, but

Everything was fine except the country of origin was not reported. I sure hope it's not Chinese. A gift for my wife.

Extremely Satisfied

Like the bow. Not a lot of experience with the variety of bows out there. Minimum experience with my violin. Three years learning back in 2003 then an 18-year hiatus. Retired and got a new teacher in 2022. Tried some carbon fiber bows. They are nice but nothing plays like wood. Good balance (I think). $519 but I'll be playing this bow for at least the next 3 years and probably longer. I consider it a good investment. I need all the help I can get.

Wonderful Bow!

Very resonant and nimble. I really appreciate the great sound I get from my Symphony Violin with this bow! Bow is straight as an arrow. Thanks Fiddlershop!

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.
