To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I’m a professional violinist and I play both regular and electric violin. I reserve all my expensive (wood and carbon fiber) bows for my regular violin and use cheap bows for my electric.
I’ve seen really crappy cheap bows around and I think for the price, this bow is really great! The weight and balance of the bow is fine, the silver winding and thumb grip aren’t a weird material, and the frog isn’t one of those cheap plastic frogs. Honestly, I’ve seen bows that were similar to this one costing $150-300.
If you’re looking for a cheap backup bow or a great beginner’s bow, I HIGHLY recommend this bow!
