Pros: same weight as my pernambuco bow but much stiffer. Made the G string sound very easily especial when playing pp which is why I wanted a new bow. Bouncing bow strokes easy to control and strong attack possible on up and down stroke
Cons: Not natural wood
Pros: As the GX in quality, Delivered without rosin therefore very good for quiet practice! This enabled me to test the quality of the hair which is excellent and non- scratchy. A very good second bow for my second instrument and for practice and back-up. Avoids the use of pernambuco with its long term instabilty and liabilty to fracture.
Cons: Prefer the GX overall.
Other: The GX is probably better for the soloist or leader, SX for second fiddle and modest personalities.
An attractive bow which produces a clear sound.
Pros: I bought this bow because I had realised my cheap bow produced a very fuzzy, woolly sound - but when I bought the cheap bow only six months ago it seemed to me to produce the best sound amongst the bows available. I concluded the fuzzy sound seemed better because it was covering up my poor playing and I decided to buy a new bow on the basis that it was recommended as being capable of producing a good sound, not because it sounded better when I was making a hash of playing. This bow seemed to be highly recommended so I chose it. When it arrived I was pleased that it looks better and brighter than its picture, but initially I thought it sounded no better than the old bow. Within a day, however, I found I was playing with a concentrated tone quite unlike the fuzzy, unfocussed sound I still get if I use the old bow. A month later I really think my strategy has paid off and that this is a bow capable of producing a very good tone. I am slowly learning to use it properly.
Cons: A wooden bow would suit the appearance of my fiddle better because the instrument is quite light-coloured and has a rough-hewn look but this bow is very dark, smooth and shiny. It was obvious, however, that a good wooden bow would cost more than it was reasonable for me to spend at this stage, and this one is more attractive than I expected.
Other: The link for tracking the parcel does not work. I have noticed this before. The parcel is delivered before the site shows it as having been received to be tracked. There is another post office site which does work if you put in the parcel number and I found it this time and was able to be in to receive the delivery.
