This is an excellent bow for the beginner viola player.

This is a simple correctly made bow adequate for beginners or as a back up. Progressing players will require something a bit better.

Unless stated otherwise all our bows are supplied with a starter coat of premium quality William Salchow rosin. Good, fresh rosin is essential to obtain the best performance from any bow.

Cheap and cheerful
2 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Cheap and good value for money for someone who only occasionally plays

Cons: nothing really, bow was as expected, felt a little lighter than my old one but I'm sure I will get use to it.

Can't fault it although I'm no expert!

Pros: My son has just started on the viola although he already plays the violin. We are borrowing a viola from school but it did not come with a bow! My son was using his old 3/4 size violin bow for the viola but I decided to give him the proper tool to use so to speak. He says that this is light to use and is much better than the violin bow.

Cons: Can't think of anything we didn't like.

Other: Arrived promptly and I thought it was reasonably priced.

Definitely value for money.

Pros: A lightweight, flexible yet durable bow. Decent tone production.

Cons: Would suit orchestral playing than sonata movements.

Other: I bought this as an extra bow to have in my case just in case of whatever emergency might happen at the eleventh hour before a performance.
