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.
ARRIVATO PUNTUALMENTE,AMAZON E' INSUPERABILE,DALLA PRIMA IMPRESSIONE L'ARCO E' UN BUON PRODOTTO ,LEGGERO E AGILE,MI SONO TROVATO SUBITO BENE E HO ABBANDONATO I MIEI ARCHI IN LEGNO. I CRINI HANNO PRESO SUBITO LA COLOFONIA E NON HO NOTATO ALCUN SFILACCIAMENTO. UNICA NOTA DOLENTE CHE NON MI HA FATTO DARE 5 STELLE, E' L'IMBALLAGGIO CON CUI E' ARRIVATO,PRATICAMENTE INESISTENTE !!!! NESSUNA PROTEZIONE PER IL TRASPORTO, LO CONTENEVA UNA SCATOLA,MEZZA SCASSATA,E TUTTA ROVINATA. NOTO CHE DA QUALCHE TEMPO NON VENGONO PIU CURATI E PROTETTI GLI OGGETTI ACQUISTATI E LA COSA MI PREOCCUPA ALQUANTO.
ordered this bow to replace the beginners bow that came with my violin. unfortuntely it came damaged. the bag it came in was tore up, with a big sticker saying made in china. the bottom of the where you hold it is cracked, and a bunch of the horse hairs were coming off. i still recommend buying a carbon fiber bow, just maybe not this one.
Sono fiero di essere il primo Italiano che acquista questo archetto Kmise in carbonio rispetto ai miei conterranei che ingannati dalla dicitura Blu della traduzione dall'Inglese pensavano al colore del prodotto, mentre invece l'archetto e' di colore NERO ! Per ora, a parte qualche crine perso durante l'applicazione della Colofonia, sembra essere molto fluido e senza intoppi. Mi riservo di aggiornare la recensione in seguito.
I have been using a student wooden bow for years, but i never like it that much. I never bought a bow because i didnt know a violin bow can actually make a lot of difference on my playing. However, recently my wooden bow started to warp, and its hard to draw a straight bow on more challenging pieces with warped bow, so i found this super low budget carbon fiber violin bow, cuz again, i dont think a violin bow would matter that much. It took just a while for the shipping, and the packaging was good enough. To be honest, when I first saw this bow, I was a little disappointed, probably because i have a bit expectation on the look after reading all those good reviews. There is nothing fancy about this violin bow, and the detailed finishing might be a little rough too. However, when i tried to draw the bow, across the violin strings, i figured how easy it was to use. It is light, strong and nicely balanced overall, and I am sure it requires less maintenance than wooden bows as its made of carbon fibre. This bow has truly improved my playing and bow hold. I am sure you can get a much better bow with higher price, but with this price, your mind will be truly blown away by this bow.
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.
Some hairs are looser. Nice how though. Needs lots of rosin but tats to be expected. The more use the smoother the sound. I would purchase again. Well packaged in a large box. I bought 2 a 4/4 for my husband and a 3/4 for myself.
