"A" level pernambuco, well air dried. Good strength/flexibility balance.
You must have seen many pernambuco bows sold on ebay at price about 30-40usd or even lower. We strongly suspect those pernambuco bows are made of genuine pernambuco wood. We have our own bow workshop and have been in this business for many years. We know how much a pernambuco bow would cost to make. We don't sell fake pernambuco bows!
YITAMUSIC Pernambuco Bow PerformanceTM Series Yitamusic pernambuco bow performance series have three quality levels, see details in the following table. Our standard for pernambuco stick is high. Those sticks don't meet our requirements are downgraded to brazilwood bow. Therefore this model is not for beginners, but for advanced players and upwards.
|"A" Level Pernambuco
The perfect pernambuco bow for professional music school students. This model has the best price performance. Well made pernambuco stick, often fitted with sterling silver (occasionally with nickel silver), with an affordable price.
|"AA" Level Pernambuco
This model suits advanced player, and can be a desirable backup bow for the professional. In general, they have good straight grain, good stiffness, good control,easy bounce and response.
|Very Limited. Only a few bows are made each year. This is due to master's limited energy and extremely strictly bow stick choice standard. If you are musician or collector, these items may suit you. Buyers may need to book in front (about one or two months early) if they want a customised master bow. |
Pernambuco, air dry density: 1.0-1.2, grows in Brazil. It is well known as the best wood for string instruments bow making. Pernambuco has best dense and flexible characters to meet the requirements of modern bows. But it is now a endangered species. Pernambuco trade is prohibited by the authority of Brazil. For bow makers, the only source is their existing stocks. We respect every pernambuco stick, and put extra care in crafting.
A good pernambuco bow should have no knots, and the grain should be thin and straight. For high quality pernambuco bows, there is no "best" bow, but a "right" bow. Same bow often sings differently on the same instrument by different players. Some players like flexible bows, and generate loud sound using high speed. Some fancy bows with great strength, and they like to use a lot pressure to get loud sound. It totally depends on player's taste. For Top Model and Master Model, we take pictures for every individual bow, and provide our opinion about this bow. It will be helpful for you to buy a right bow.
Our top level bow has very high reputation. recent feedback from customers can be found below

"My bow arrived safely. Thanks you. I would really like to commend your staff for the excellent craftsmanship that has gone into this bow. Because I am a violin-maker my standards are extremely high, and I have to say this bow has been made without any flaws or problems. It is perfect. Please pass on this message to your bow-maker"-----------------Philip
"I wanted to tell you that I have found your instruments and bows to be amazing quality for the price. I bought a viola from your company last year through ebay, and when I took it to have the bridge fitted, the Luthier said that the viola was worth more than 5 times what I paid for it. Your bows are beautiful and well made, too, and would cost probably 5 - 10 times more if bought from a local music shop. Thank you so much!" -------------------------------------------------Anna
"I Got my bow today, I love it!!! It's carbon fiber bow I've ever played and I played many brands in the past. Please tell the maker that he is one hell of a bow maker!"---------------------------------------------Jonathan
"I want to tell you that this exquisite copy is one of your "Hallmark" pieces--a real "Grand AMATI" in every way. In a small but famous shop in Washington, D.C., about 37 years ago, I looked at 3 Nicolo Amati violins in this pattern and I can tell you that your maker has captured the pure essence of the Amati House of Violinmaking at its best! "-------------Mack
