We purchased this bow during a holiday sale and are extremely happy with it. It was paired with an intermediate level violin received for christmas. The bow hair arrived perfectly in place and the bow itself is beautiful. The best part is the sound. Very smooth and clear and an enormous step up from the rental bow our student had been using.

When I received this bow, I was shocked to find that it was significantly longer than my other bows, including my instructor's. could not fit in my case. when I told shar music, they acted as tough as I was making it up. I did get the replacement but I did not like the customer service at all.

This bow has great flexibility and produces a smooth sound. I recommend this bow to all my intermediate level students. It pairs well with the Carlo Lamberti violins.

I did a bow trial a few summers ago when Shar did a free one-month bow trial. Of the four I tried, this one was the best. I was playing Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture at the time and it was perfect for the 16ths and string-crossing sections. This bow is very versatile and a steal at it's current price. A must have.

Great bow for the price! I could perform a wide variety of strokes with it - on and off the string. There was a bit more weight in the middle of the stick, and this allowed the opportunity for a great amount of power. Overall a wonderful bow!

Great question! It all depends on your budget and how well you like this bow. An upgraded bow would be about $300, while a bow re-hair tends to be around $70. These R. A. Meinel bows are a great inexpensive option for intermediate players, and if you like how it feels and plays, then a re-hair would be worth it!
