I am constantly searching for the right bow. I think I might buy a Coda bow, (classic). Anyone use this bow? Would you recommend it?

No, but I took a look at their website and the prices look better than I'd imagined. I'm little more than a hack with a fiddle so I doubt I'd appreciate the refinement, but I can hear the difference between my fiddler friend's crapola and supremo bows.

I'm curious now too...anyone?

Peace, Mooh.

I've been using the Coda Electric http://www.codabow.com/models-electric.html for about 6 months now, the response is excellent on both my acoustic and electric violin I'd recommend it. I did try the classic but preferred the Electric.

Excellent bows. I have a Coda Aspire that did me for ages, although now I have a hand made baroque bow that is >really< special.

Thread creep (a little): I got an incredibow recently (http://www.musicblade.com/Incredibow.htm) and it's great for taking to the pub and not worrying about where I set it down between the few tunes I can 'play'. It's carbon fibre with nylon hair, so it's waterproof and wipe-clean, never needs tension adjusting, and is super light.

I bought a Conservatory a couple of years back; I doubt if I'll ever need an upgrade. Right away, I found that I could do all sorts of things that the cheap bows I'd used previously hadn't been capable of in the hands of a competent, but only moderate, player. Certainly worth the price; you'd be very lucky to get anything in wood even approaching it for the same money. Some players find that they miss the way wooden bows vibrate and are not comfortable with the graphite feel; but that hasn't bothered me in the least.

Friend of mine has one and I hate it. Can't get any action out of it, no 'resilence'.....but that could be just me.

I love em, they play really well and the resonse is excelent.

But they are not everybodys cup of tea.

Many musos esp in the folk scene don't put enough importance on bows.

I had a pal in classical world who had a £6K bow (nearly 3x the price of my fiddle)and it was brilliant to say the least.


But give it a good try B4 you buy!
