Bows and Rosin

If you're new to the bow, or buying for a student, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the choices. Should you get one with real horsehair? (Yes.) Should you get French or German style? (Depends.) Brazilwood, Pernambuco, Fiberglas, Carbon Fiber? (How far are you planning to take your development?)

We're here to help. We put together our Bow Buying Guide to help answer some of these questions for you, and We have FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions) about bows and other related subjects in our collection of free resources.

We don't offer "bow trials," where you get sent 3 or 4 bows and keep the one you like best; we've found that the bows we get are VERY consistent, and rather than tack on an extra $75-$100 to the price of the bows to cover the extra costs of inspection and cleaning, shipping, insurance, etc. (which is how the other shops can afford to do trials like those) we figure at this price range, you'd rather pocket the extra money and trust that we'll send you a great bow for a great price (we will.)

And, of course, we're here for you -- you can always email or call us to help you make sense of all of the options at your fingertips (pun intended).
