    Favorite of Two Pernambuco Bows

    I tried this bow along with three others (one other pernambuco and two carbon fiber) using Shar's in home trial program. I preferred it above the other wood bow and even above one of the carbon iber bows. However, it didn't feel quite as natural in my hand and although the balance/control was pretty good, it wasn't perfect. Still, it is a fine bow! ... (See Full Review)

    What a difference it makes!

    We purchased this bow because my son couldn’t go to ¾ size violin yet but wanted to improve the sound and was ready to go to next level of violin playing. And, we are very happy with this bow. According y son who is the actual player and has a smaller physical body, it’s well balanced, responsive, and easy to control. My view (a parent who doesn’t know much about music but has been listening kid’s violin playing for last 5 years) is that this bow allows the broad range of sound. When compare to the previous one my son used to use (no brand name, pernambuco, purchased from local shop, $100 at the time), the volume level of Forte sound this bow produces is a couple of notches higher. And, for ‘P’ (piano), it produces crispy sound, not the mushy sound what the previous bow makes. To summarize, for parent who does not know much about music but is still very interested in kid’s violin playing growth AND the player is ready, I recommend this bow. Even if it’s not this particular bow model, I strongly recommend you to consider SharMusic’s home-trial program and to see how much difference the bow makes. By the way, this bow is beautifully made. But, I thought that there was no point mentioning the beauty, if it’s doesn’t make the sound you are looking for. ... (See Full Review)
