Latest model from Codabow.
The ideal bow for players seeking both light facility and rich tonality, the LUMA is influenced by the historically remarkable bows of Voirin, Lamy, and Thomassin. A few grams lighter than its DIAMOND companions, the LUMA is a testament to modern bow design. Compelling for Fiddle, Jazz, and Classical alike, the LUMA delivers a truly enlightened performance to every style.

Pros: The Luma is an excellent bow for those players who wish to indulge a passion for jazz, blues or folk styles.It is light and well suited to producing those ghost notes, so favoured by jazz and blues players. For those that use the folk/bluegrass chop, this bow offers controllable exciting sounds (especially on an electric fiddle with pedals). Most of all i love the effortless manoeuvrability, the bow is so light and feels as if it wants to dance over the strings. I love playing with this bow.
Cons: For classical players it may require more effort to produce the stronger sounds associated with the genre.
Other: I have both the Luma and the Joule by coda both purchased from The String Zone. Both are innovative and exciting in different ways and bring different things to your sound. I enjoy playing with both bows and wouldn't want to use any others now. Superb products, both! The string Zone may I add, have been a joy to do business with.

Pros: I had the choice of four Codabows on trial. After a few days of playing them, the Luma was the one for me. It is very agile and, at the same time, expressive in a way that the NX, GX and Joule are not. For me a carbon fibre bow is a must. They can withstand tough gigging far better than wooden bows.

Pros: Light and well styled. Much better to play than other coda bows I've tried even though they cost more. Bit more like my Musicari.
Cons: Nothing except the little leather pad where your thumb goes feels thicker than normal.
Other: I like carbon fibre bows because they are sturdy, don't warp and seem to be better that pernambuco ones at the same price.
