Best Carbon Fiber Violin Bow Under $ 100 (Fiddlerman Weave) | Violin Lounge TV #321

by | Aug 28, 2019 | 4 comments

Can get a decent bow for under $100? Check out my review of this Fiddlerman Weave violin bow to find out!

At first glance the bow looks quite traditional with it’s dark brown almost black color. You will also see the slight grain of the carbon fiber. The overall finish of the bow is very nice.

Let’s talk about control

Once I began playing, I noticed it’s stiffer which makes it easier to translate from your hands to the bow.

While jumping it feels slightly unstable so the more you jump the less control you may have. It’s really about finding a balance.

In general the response is great and it is quite easy to control.

How does it sound?

Mainly the sound is on the bright side. The bow produces full, wide open sounds with a bit of mellowness to it. You will still hear the sound going over the string but in this price range the sound is just right.

So do I think this is the best bow you can get for under a $100?


This is a great choice if you are looking to upgrade your bow from a less expensive starter bow.

    Congrats Zlata.
    Your life will now become a beautiful mess full of love and anxiety with moments of peace and then insanity.
    Enjoy it though.
    It only comes once per child and then it is gone.
    Love your husband more and build a solid foundation that your kids will roll their eyes at one day but will love for the security they will feel knowing the two of you love each other so much in a world of chaos.
    I hope it all goes well for you, your husband and your children. 🙂
    Again, congratulations. 🙂
