Average Customer Rating:

4 Stars
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."

    Disappointed (only good as a spare bow)

    I bought this one for my 9 year old a couple of months ago when she broke her bow (for the 2nd time!). Based on the reviews and the price we felt this should be adequate for her and her 1/4 ize violin. I am not a professional violin player but I have good ears and I have to say this bow does not produce great sounds. My daughter's old wood bow which was not that much more expensive than this one produced a better, deeper, clearer sounds. I can't exactly say what it is but the sound comes out quite harsh and somewhat metalic and not the "warm" violin sound that I'm used to. This is our first fusion/carbon bow but I certainly don't like it. I initially thought that the bow had to be played for a while before better sounds come out but it has not changed a bit. My daughter does not complain anything about it and she does not seem to find it any different from her old bow but I'm ready to buy another bow (definitely wood next time)! So, overall, I think the best thing about this bow is that it's cheap (thus 2 stars) and maybe good enough to be a spare one that you keep in the case but not for playing every day. ...

    I´m just learning to play violin, my old bow just got twistet and hairless. This one is very good, easy to play, I can do what Yehudi Menuhin says: "if I blow when you are playing, the ow should move and still you have to pruduce a nice warm sound". i ´ve being playing for almost a year and still all the hair is in the bow!! ...
