For years string teachers have told us that fiberglass bows are a durable and practical choice for active young students and their budget-conscious parents. But because they lack the finesse and handling properties of wood or carbon fiber bows, teaching bowing techniques can be difficult. We listened to our colleagues and set out to find a solution. The result is the SHAR FUSION student bow. Utilizing high tech composite of carbon fiber and fiberglass, the SHAR FUSION is strong and priced right. But best of all, the SHAR FUSION performs like much more expensive wood or carbon fiber bow. Try one today!

"When considering a new bow for their student, teachers and parents alike have expressed their desire for a well-constructed bow that doesn't compromise its playability and responsiveness. I'm happy to say this bow is an excellent option for customers looking for a durable and practical bow, without inhibiting a young player's sound and technique development. Immediately after trying this bow for the first time, I noticed how easily the violin responded to it."
- William Kaltz-Hall, Violinist, Contact Center Representative

Canadian rock group Article One (www.articleonemusic.com), combines pop-rock accessibility with the hard-driving virtuosity and honesty of an indie band. Here's what Article One's world-class rock violinist, Matt Piche', has to say about the Shar Fusion bows that he uses in his performances:
"The Shar Fusion allows me to express all the passion and intensity that Article One's music demands, without wilting or breaking. Sometimes our shows get a little crazy - the rugged Fusion bow stands up to abuse better than any wood bow, yet it plays like a good wood bow. It's ideal for demanding music-making."

    Not So Great

    Pros: Cheap, decent quality sound Cons: H-E-A-V-Y, the cork that attaches the hair into the bow pulls out I'm a beginner, so what do I really know, right? I was steered to this bow after peaking with a customer service rep from Shar after the beginning bow I got from their violin outfit warped after having it less than a year and barely touching it. This bow came looking nice, and seemed to play nice, but WOW was this thing heavy. It has made it really difficult to play correctly as I am constantly compensating for the weight of this hunker. My teacher, the shop owner, and my friend who plays professionally all remarked on how crazy heavy it is. I also never screw it in too tight (others tend to tell me I leave the hair a little looser when I play than maybe I should) so imagine my surprise when I had this bow looked at and was told by several sources that the hair/cork thing was coming out due to it being tightened too much. Which I don't do. This happened after having it for a little over a month. It may look pretty, and maybe it's good for some really aggressive work because of the weight, but if you're a beginner I'd advise to steer clear of this. It could always work out for you though, as it has for others here, but I was surprised no one mentioned how heavy this was after I had read all the reviews before I bought it. ... (See Full Review)

    buzzing vibration with this bow

    I bought this bow based on the great reviews on this website. I wonder now if they are even legitimate or if I got a dud bow. We got this bow to replace the wooden bow that came with the offman Maestro set and expected it to sound better since it is more expensive and I have heard such great things about carbon fiber performance. However, we get only an annoying buzz from this bow. We have tried tightening/loosening the hair, cleaning the strings, etc. and nothing helps. I went back to the old wooden bow to make sure it wasn't my violin that was to blame, but even the old, tired wooden bow made a much smoother sound than this bow. I do NOT recommend and would return this one if I didn't have to worry about the 20% restocking fee. ... (See Full Review)
