We are the UK's premier supplier of Coda bows. The entry bow in the Diamond series offers advancing players a performance bow at a realistic price.

The Diamond NX is our best selling bow at this price point. It combines quality, playability and affordability to produce a bow suitable for student and amateur players at all levels.

The NX Diamond features a firmer stick than SX and GX which makes it easier to control for learners whilst ensuring a positive feel and producing an even, sweet tone. The balance point is biased toward the head which aids control when playing with the lower half of the bow.

The bow has a neutral, even feel for good control along the entire length of the stick. This helps students develop their technique on a bow without idiosyncrasies.

These bows can be rehaired in the traditional manner and as such should give no problems for a qualified bow repairer, thereby ensuring a lifetime of service equal to any traditional wooden bow.

Excellent Bow from Coda
26 out of 27 found the following review helpful

Pros: Beautifully finished. Nice detailing. Good looking. Good weight, balance, and feel. Precise tensioning. Quality hair. Quite nimble handling. A similarly performing wooden bow would cost much more. It certainly has improved my playing. Recommended.

Cons: Nothing

Diamonds can be a Violinists best Friends..?
17 out of 20 found the following review helpful

Pros: I was delighted with the first Diamond NX that I bought last year.... I did a blind test to sselect it from theree other bows. It just felt so balanced and "right"... and my playing has improved over the past year of using it. I have two very fine violins. One bought last year which I bought the last year's bow for, and another different tone, and temperament, violin which I have had for several years. The last years new Diamond NX was to use with the "new" violin... resut satisfaction. but... I like playing the other violin too... so I tried the Diamond NX with that on several occasions instead of the ordinary bow I usually use with it. Result... improvment on that instrument too. So, just a few weeks ago I decided to invest in a ssecond Diamond NX for the other violin.. and that new bow is as good as the original one. One cannot tell the difference between the two when playing. They both perform brilliantly. Result... one happy customer. Thank you String Zone...!

Cons: Nothing really not liked... oh, one hair on the second bow broke on first using it. the first bow has had nearly a year's use and no broken hairs at all....

Other: Coda Bows,seem very good value.... I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

A great option.
6 out of 6 found the following review helpful

Pros: Reasonably priced for a good quality bow. Does everything that you need it to do for grade 8+. Great for good pupils that are still at school as it is more sturdy than a wooden stick. Not too heavy but with a very clear sound.

Cons: Nothing as yet.

Other: Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a bow to take them up to college standard. It responds well and makes a very good, clear sound.

Coda Diamond NX violin bow
10 out of 14 found the following review helpful

Pros: I had previously bought a Coda Conservatory bow for my older son and was impressed by it, for use on his violin from Cremona. Unfortunately I did not know when he was completing his Grade 8 exam as he needed a better bow like the Coda Diamond NX. The Diamond NX has been bought for my younger son to use with his Cremona violin. His playing has just got much much better. His violin teacher is very impressed. His teacher says he is now well on course to achieve a distinction at Grade 8.

Cons: Nothing to note here.

Other: We have recorded the music played on the Cremona violins ( now 4 years old) and sent it to our Luthier in Cremona. He is thrilled with the improvement in the sounds using the Coda Diamond NX bow.

classy workhorse to improve playing
6 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: nice weight. good comfortable feel from the moment you pick it up. you can feel that it is well constructed eg the way the screw n the frog turns so effortlessly. don't know why but it makes you feel less anxious in that you know you have a bow of quality so if you play badly it's you, not the bow

Cons: at first i thought oh no ! the bow i bought from ebay for 30 quid is better but this was not the case and getting used to it i realised what a really good bow it is. this took about 30 minutes to be honest

Other: i realised i had a number of bows which were good but not that good. this is a great bow especially for the price. i could have bought it cheaper from a firm in canada but i have always had excellent service from the string zone and it was the case with the bow. i have not heard a negative comment about this bow from reading reviews or from players. i also use this with an electric violin.

A good buy.
3 out of 3 found the following review helpful

Pros: Excellent well made and balanced bow, tracks well across the strings and makes more advanced bowing techniques easier to execute. It is far better than any wooden bow I have tried in the same price bracket.

Cons: The bow is much darker in colour than I was expecting and it is not that easy to see the diamond weave.
