CodaBow Carbon Fiber Violin Bow Review | Violin Lounge TV #325
Discover which violin bow is best for you with this extensive review video of the CodaBow Diamond NX, Diamond GX and Marquise.
CodaBow violin bows are one of the most popular carbon bows out there. With so many different types, how do you know which is a good fit for you?
It is a combination of the bright and clear sound, as well as the response that makes CodaBow violin bows a favorite. In this video, Concert violinist Giedrė and I are going to demonstrate and review the three most popular types of CodaBow’s so you can decide the best one for you!
CodaBow Diamond NX
Upon playing the Diamond NX appears to be more of a student bow. It is a bit heavier and more difficult to manage in advanced bowing techniques. On the other side it’s really secure in legato bowing. This bow also seemed a little less balanced compared to the Diamond GX and the Marquise.
CodaBow Diamond GX
The Diamond GX is more of a performance bows and demonstrates a very clear sound and with nice jumping to it. It’s very versatile.
Similar to the Diamond GX, the Marquise is more of a performance bow. Not only do we love the more traditional wooden bow appearance but it has a brighter and cleaner sound than the other bows.
So if you already have a good quality performance bow such as the Diamond GX, is it worth the upgrade to the Marquise?
As demonstrated you can clearly hear the brighter sound compared to the other bows. So think about the difference it could make with the violin you are using. If you hear a major change in sound between the two bows, why wouldn’t you want to upgrade?
So even though there is a higher price of approximately $400 associated with this bow, given the overall sound improvement we consider this to be a worth while upgrade!
