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 carbon fiber construction, 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, 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."

The first one they sent me was broken but the customer service was amazing and they got me a new almost immediately highly recommend I love this product

Decent bow for the price

I bought this bow as I needed a German style bow for a run of gigs, and honestly didn't want to spend a lot of money. For what it is, it's a very nice bow in the price range and the hair is nicer than I expected at this price point.
One thing I do not like is the leather wrap. I've only used it on five rehearsals at this point, and the leather is starting to come apart at the seam, and there are some noticeable gouges in the leather itself. These are things that really shouldn't happen this quickly; we're talking about a span of three weeks.

Good Product when it works

I love Shar products, and as an educator on a budget I thought this was a dream importunity to replace my old dilapidated fleet of bass bows with a decent product at a good price. When I received the 10 that I ordered, one was broken right out of the box. It wouldn't tighten, then within a week 2 more had gone the same way, and now 6 months in, 5 of the original 10 don't work. The hair pulls away from the frog, and the bow won't tighten. Now Shar has been great about replacing them, but I don't want to keep having to send in the bad ones and get another that may or may not have the same problem. I fear I may have to look into replacing the whole fleet sometime in the near future.

stopped working

I am an elementary/middle school string teacher and have loved the Shar Fusion violin bows. So I decided to try the bass bow despite the other post about having many of them go bad. The one I bought was great for 6 weeks and then it became impossible to tighten enough. The screw is screwed in as far as it will go and the hair is still way too loose. The bow will have to go back.
