I now have a bow that is more expensive than my violin, a big step for someone who has only been playing for 2.5 years. I am extremely pleased and fully satisfied that I made this step on the advice of a trusted fiddle teacher who emphatically told my class to buy the best bow we could find under $500. Naturally, I came straight to Fiddlerman, the consummate judge and buyer of all things violin. The beautiful 3-star Holstein bow balances perfectly in my hand, allowing me to actually hold it correctly! In turn, my grip is more relaxed and the sound on the strings is wonderfully rich and full. My modest fiddle sounds so much better, enough so that I can wait 2-3 years to upgrade my instrument, knowing that when I do, I will already have the bow to bring forth its potential.

If you know you will continue playing the violin, then consider the Holstein Pernambuco  bows as a wise step in a gradual upgrade of your equipment. Thank you, Fiddlerman!
