Reviews around weight (5.00 of 5)

  • The weight is perfect for me, and it pulls a louder, richer tone from my fiddle than my old one
  • The weight of the bow is nice and has a good feel so am hoping the shedding stops soon.
  • I like the weight of the bow and way it handled

  • Great student bow for the price!
  • If I was unwilling to spend more, I'd say that this is a good student bow to have.
  • My student prefers this bow over another bow that I purchased at a local music store.

Reviews around price (3.86 of 5)

  • I read the reviews for this Pernambuco bow and they were somewhat favorable and the price was reasonable, so I took the plunge
  • I love my new bow, think this new bow improve my play, nice price, excellent materials, love the new sound in my violin
  • Got it at a cheap price as a spare to practice with.
  • If the price to value was in any way accurate, this appears to be an excellent buy.
  • My price was a little better than current listing - try bargaining or shopping.

Reviews around balance (3.40 of 5)

  • I do give it one more star than one (two stars), because it does have a nice balance to me, and it was actually an improvement from the kit bow
  • Overall, the balance of the bow is very very good and can be easier for students who are doing spiccato or any strokes with the bow off the string
  • Then, not even 3 months since I've gotten it, the tip of the bow decided to break as I’m rehearsing in class
  • It has a fair balance, but the gap between hair and bow is extremely large when tightened
  • Though similar to the bows included in my original violin purchase, this one appears to have a somewhat better balance over the length of stroke (which may be just a mental justification for buying what may not have been needed).

Reviews around quality (3.33 of 5)

  • so I was taking a chance thiswould get here on time and be of good quality
  • I received my bow today and it is a Wonderful quality for the price.
  • The sound quality is really good and it improves the sound of my instrument.
  • I had to wrap duct tape around it), but just as well it does not retain fine sound quality as it should
  • The horsehairs-- which, at a glance, you could tell was of poor quality; the hairs were very scarce in the first place-- easily snapped even as I was careful in taking it in and out of my case, and too often, a few would randomly break off as I was practicing; it wasn't even that I was playing “rough” music, either
