Do you need a new bow? Most players, regardless of skill level, eventually come to the realization that a new bow would be beneficial to their technical and musical development. If your current bow feels like it slips and skates on the surface of the string... if you have a hard time producing more than just a few tone colors... if your off-the-string bowings are noisy and hard to control, then you should consider trying different bows. Please call one of our specialists, all string players, to discuss the Shar In-Home Trial Program: 866-742-7270.

Good control

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!

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.

excellent bow

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.

Excellent for the money

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.
