I am new violin student. I bought this to replace my cheap rental bow after I upgraded my violin. While I only have the one bow to compare it to, I noticed the difference immediately. The workmanship is also conspicuously better. My instructor said it was a little on the heavier side (no doubt because of the sandalwood), but told me that may be a good thing for me at this stage. In any case, glad i purchased it.
Meets the need
The bow is for a 14 year old using a 4/4 playing for 10 years now and for general use it meets the need.
Love it so much I bought a second one
I love the tone this bow brings out in the 100+ year-old family violin I inherited when my dad passed, so I had my son try it to see if he wanted one too. Teenagers can be a bit reluctant to do anything, but the more he practiced with it, the more he liked it. He liked it so much he wanted to abscond with it, but I ordered a slightly longer bow for him because he is still growing. Our teacher is very pleased with our progress, which has been improved by these bows.
Worth the hype!
Not gonna lie I was skeptical when reading about this bow in the staff picks post - but oh my gosh it’s really good!! Great for beginners who are advancing and will appreciate the change in quality/sound from a carbon bow. Definitely peaked my interest in the 1-3 star bows!
Love the bow. Plays well, looks nice.
