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.

Superb bow for folk fiddling.
2 out of 4 found the following review helpful

Pros: I read several reviews about the Col Legno bow before buying, all positive but I tried another more expensive one out (Orchestra carbon fibre) and didn't like it so I finally bought this one. I also wanted a 3/4 size bow to travel with. I thought it would be a nice second bow but to be honest I can't put it down! It's brilliant for folk fiddling, simple tunes that I usually play. It's got a great balance and response and you can spiccato really neatly with it too. At this rate my much more expensive ipe wood normal bow isn't going to see much use.

Cons: None to mention.

Other: Great service, really fast despatch and nicely packed in a tube

Very good buy for my level of playing and my needs

Pros: Nice and light with a very good audio capacity much easier to use than my previous bow and get a better quality of tone from my instrument though I'm still only settling in to it therefore I hope that this will get even better. A joy to practise with.

Cons: Haven't come across a thing yet and hope never to!

Other: Well worth what I paid for it. A friend bought a much more expensive bow and found that there was little difference between them, she was impressed too.
