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 boiw for the price

Pros: Produced a very nice tone, responsive and easy to use. Tried 3 bows and this one stood out; we recorded me playing all three and when asked my (guitarist) husband immediately picked the Coda - I had already decided it was my choice. Gives a lovely warmth and depth to slow airs, manoeuvrable for fast jigs and reels. Excellent service from Stingzone as usual.

Cons: Registration number being under the frog!! Had never removed the frog before so was a bit anxious but managed it easily. Don't know why they need to put it there.

Fantastic well-balanced bow.

Pros: I bought this after trying a number of more expensive wood and carbon fiber bows. This one is far and away the best balanced bow I have played with. It is perfectly weighted and very responsive. It looks beautiful too.

Cons: It's about 1cm longer than my other bows do fitting it in the case is a little challenging. It can be done though and the extra length is good when playing.

Other: I doubt if I'll use s wooden now again!
