A lovely bow.

Pros: Well balanced and responsive. Made techniques such as double-stopping and sautille feel easy. Drew a full sound from my viola.

Cons: Nothing.

Other: I bought this one! Bows are a personal decision and should always be tried in comparison with others.

Singing clear tone.

Pros: Great delivery (to Australia) experience. The sound of the bow is a singing tone, reduced noise content, medium spiccato/weight response. Immaculate mechanism and hair quality. Pitch content is very clear, and this forces player to higher level of care with intonation

Cons: The bow is slightly short - hair length 15mm less than my other bow. Wasnt expecting this.
