On my previous viola this bow worked wonders and reminded me strongly of the coda bow diamond gx, quick response, excellent spicatto. On the viola I have now this bow frustrates me to no end, it's sluggish and too bouncy. But on both of my instruments it did pull out a pretty decent tone. Test out this bow before you buy it!
I love this bow! It was a step up from my beginnerís bow that came with my viola. Itís very comfortable for me to play with. My teacher liked it.
I gave Shar the impossible task of coming up with a great sounding bow that I could use with both my violin and viola. I feel that they have done it. 68 grams; violin bows are normally 60 grams, and viola bows 70 grams. It gives better tone than my Presto ovation violin bow, and I like it better than my Presto Audition viola bow. Previously, I had been using the Audition with my violin, but this is an upgrade. Yea! My experience: I am a multi-instrumentalist, playing guitar, banjo, piano, violin, viola, and have played bass and drums. I am fairly fanatical about tone. Note: Below this model, I feel the quality may not be at this level; above this model, you may be paying a lot of money for something you don't really need. I like it.
I was looking into upgrading my Presto Ovation viola bow for a Fiddlerman Pro, and then a CodaBow GX. To my amazement, I prefer the Presto over the Coda GX (lacking in clarity), and the Fiddlerman Pro was far more expensive, but no better in sound. I returned
the Fiddlerman Pro, and did not buy the Coda GX. The presto (both violin and viola versions) will remain my primary bows. I am not into bouncing bow technique that much, but look for tone above all else.
