Carbon Violin Bow with Phoenix Emblem Ebony Frog (4/4)
German Silver Fitted
About this bow
Good balance of strength and flexibility.
This is a great value bow with about the equivalent of a medium stiffness brazilian pernambuco that exhibits a good degree of flexibility. What carbon bow offers is that you can get better stiffness for a lower price, so you lose a bit of sweetness in the sound (debatable also) for not using a wooden bow, you gain for much better control and hence may deliver better music.
At Old Violin House, we import carbon raw materials from South Korea instead of Chinese producers. South Korean raw materials we find give better strength and this translates to stiffer bows that moves musical vibrations better.
This bow is suitable for the advancing student that requires a reasonably good bow at the best value price.

All our instruments are made twice.
Making twice ensures tonal quality.
Having 100% handmade by family workshops is not enough. We setup white violins and test them. Then we open them back up to make micro measurement changes before sealing them. Making it twice ensures optimal tone quality so tone will improve over time as the wood ages.
Pegs that just work.
Tune easily and stays in place.
We have strict quality control that ensures the pegs on the our instruments are polished and fitted well. And because each peg is individually calibrated according to the peg hole position, you can micro turn them easily. And when you've tuned them, they stay in place.

Your instruments will be packed in the best possible method that we have learnt and improved over the past 9 years. Soundpost may dislodge during shipping. No amount of good packaging can prevent soundpost from dislodging because it is a loose piece of wood inside the instrument. Fixing a dislodge soundpost is the responsibility of the buyer.
