Best bow in this price range
7 out of 9 found the following review helpful

Pros: Excellent quality carbon bow, the only decent one we could find (at a reasonable price). Still in perfect condition after one year of daily usage. Vastly better than any wooden bow in this price range.

Cons: Slightly expensive - but worth the money.

I don't think I would reccomend it to friends.

Pros: It's lighter than my permanbuco

Cons: I have no idea what the bow hair is made of. The overall quality of the bow could be better for the price

Excellent performance and quality for the price
1 out of 2 found the following review helpful

Pros: I purchased the Kandler some three years ago, and it has been an excellent bow, now even better value for the quality. It was bought as a travelling bow, and has withstood extremes of humidity with no problems, very tough! As to performance, it produces a good tone on both my new and old violins, and feels well balanced and comfortable to play. Certainly as good as a wood bow over twice its price!

Cons: A couple of minor issues after 3 years use:a hairline cosmetic crack in the frog, leather grip has become loose, and the hair is difficult to tension. But these can all be sorted out by a little tlc and maintenance I am assured.

Other: Excellent service from Stringzone as always, although delivery to France did take a little longer than expected, due to the postal service, unfortunately something beyond stringzone' s control! The bow is well finished, having attractive inlay and Parisian eye

Kandler Carbon Bow

Pros: Not a bad bow for the price. Reasonably well balanced and feels ok in the hand. Produces a good enough sound.

Cons: Seems a little short, is that just me? The flex is a little weak.
