A very close second to the Carvalho Bow

Pros: It felt nice in the hand. Good quality feel and finish. Lovely tones from the cello when using this bow. Good for playing various tempos.

Cons: No cons to note

Other: I had the home trial of the bows and out of the 4 trialled this came a very close second to the Carvalho Round stick bow. It made a lovely sound but not as good as the Carvalho.

The stringzone is know my ZONE.

Pros: The lightness of the ebony bow is far easier to handle than my original mahogany. I have yet to tighten the strings to there correct tightness at this time,but i have already found it has it is producing a more mellow tone than the old. I recommend this bow to any one any where.

Cons: NON

Other: This is my bow for life.
