What a difference! Great for a big sound

Pros: With my daughter moving up from 3/4 to 4/4 cello and needing a new bow, we took advantage of the (excellent) loan scheme to try this bow along with three others - 2 carbon fibre bows and another pernambuco one. To be honest I expected the carbon bows to be best, but the purist/luddite in me wanted to give wood a fair go. Well, none of them was bad but this bow clearly stood out - a very noticeably bigger, punchier sound. Not quite as sweet on the high notes as the carbon bows, but much richer in the bass and better projection all round. Not quite sure how that works (most illuminating discussion I can find is here http://www.aitchisoncellos.com/publications/cello-and-bow-articles/cello-bow-articles/exploring-bow-sound/). Interestingly, they all sounded pretty similar on the old 3/4 cello, where the instrument itself must be the limiting factor. But it really brought out the potential of the 4/4 cello. Surprising.

Cons: None
