Excellent value for this price range
17 out of 21 found the following review helpful

Pros: Perfect weight. Good balance. Just the right amount of pull from the hair.

Cons: Nothing

Other: I've been after a better bow for a while to replace a cheap starter bow, and a slightly better one I borrowed. It's hard to know what to go for, to know how much to spend so I asked a good violinist friend and she said how much she liked her Col Legno Standard. On trying it, I was sold and ordered one. I'm equally impressed with this one. It's just the right weight, excellent balance and has much better hair than on the bows I was previously using, which has made all the different in the tone I am able to produce. I feel a lot more confident and I wish I'd treated myself when I first realised I needed a new one. Also the service from String Zone was first rate. Ordered after lunch on Monday - arrived with the postman on Wednesday morning. Brilliant.

Lovely bow to match my black electric violin
9 out of 10 found the following review helpful

Pros: Lovely bow - nice weight, bounce and a noticeably nicer tone than with the cheap bow that came free with my Fender electric violin.

Cons: No real cons. Perhaps that it's harder to keep clean that a traditional wooden bow, but the polished black looks lovely with my black electric violin.

Good value
10 out of 13 found the following review helpful

Pros: I am very new to the violin and bought a used student model. Others had told me that a good bow was essential and the gentleman at your company persuaded me that this model would suit. It certainly has made progress easier and faster. As far as I can tell it feels balanced, light and the quality horse hair does the job.

Cons: I can think of nothing

Carbon Fibre is not only for fishing rods!
4 out of 7 found the following review helpful

Pros: My 14yr son is lead 2nd Violin in a Youth Orchestra and following an unfortunate accident we decided to get professional help in choosing a replacement bow. He is very happy with this choice. It is comparable to his old bow in all respects AND IS UNBREAKABLE .....

Cons: Nothing

Good travelling bow

Pros: I purchased the bow to take along with my Cricket travelling violin, and ordered the 3/4 size as I needed a shorter and cheaper bow to take onboard a sailing boat. It does the job fine. Good price and reasonable quality.

Cons: I wouldn't use it as my 'best bow' as I have a Coda Diamond bow which is much better quality, but it still gives a much better sound and feel than a cheap wood or plastic bow.

Other: I would imagine that the full size version provides a good option for folk players going out to pubs to play.
