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.
The bow came in great shape. it is straight, played nice, has pretty good balance. bow hair is correct length. but after about 3 months, the hair feels like it worn out. it feels like it would slide across the strings and does not produce a constant tone. i only started playing the violin a month before getting the bow. The amount of time I need to replace the bow per year, it'd be better off and makes more sense in buying a mid to mid-high end bow.
I just received it I’m a beginner myself the bow is light. I’m pretty sure it’s horse hair but when trying to bow at the frog and at the top of the bow like it doesn’t sound right or you can barely hear it.. I don’t know I have a k.holtz bow and it’s not like that.. hmm.. I read the reviews and they said it’s perfect it for me it’s not..the first one that they send me the hair is falling off then this one.. I’ll just used it.. but I rather buy like $50-70 bow that I will not have complain about..
No Care Instructions or anything in the box besides a piece a plastic and paper which was wrapped around the bow inside the box for packaging. Several of the bow hairs for split and broken. Other than that most of the bow seemed to still be okay. I could have spent a few extra bucks and gotten a decent bow made in the good ol USA.
I needed a new bow to get started playing again after a 12 year break. This thing did the trick, but I'm going to upgrade to something nicer now. The hairs on this bow aren't exactly straight, you can really tell how they are warped on long bow strokes. The sound is wispy, not warm at all. Also, my right thumbnail cut into the rubber grip, so now there's a hunk of rubber flapping around.
