Very Impressive Bow
10 out of 11 found the following review helpful

Pros: Very high quality product. Beautifully finished and balanced. Exceptionally light and responsive to play. Sound is very clean and free from unwanted noise. Plays really well on my acoustic and electric instruments. Can safely take this to a band practice or pub gig without worry of breakage.

Cons: The sound may be a little more "polite" and "sterile" than an equivalent priced wooden bow.

Other: Highly recommended (for violinists) - some fiddle styles and 5/6/7 string electric instruments may be better served by the Codabow Joule.

Attractive, flexible and nicely balanced.
4 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: The bow feels balanced, smooth, flexible and generally comfortable. I thought it would feel no better to me than the SX at my level of playing and only got the GX instead of a second SX because I had discounts which brought the price down. In the event the GX feels slightly more flexible and somehow lighter than the SX though they are the same weight. The SX is good too.

Cons: The gold logo is a tiny bit flashy and must add to the price. I quite fancied it before I got it but now I'm just a little embarrassed by it!

Other: It's expensive but probably value for money. There's been a lot of hype about Coda bows and I'm not claiming it's miraculous or better than other bows, because I haven't the experience. It's a good bow though.

A good tool.
1 out of 1 found the following review helpful

Pros: State of the art materials. Design based on traditional bow and on a modern scientific approach to manufacture. Practically -not virtually- unbreakable.

Cons: Nothing really.

Other: I have discarded my original bow which came with an outfit and have confidence in making progress with this bow.
