The Fiddlerman Pro Series carbon fiber violin bow is light (54 grams), promises a brilliant sound, lightning-fast bowing, excellent balance and fantastic response.

Let’s put it to the test and compare it to other brands like Arcus, CodaBow, JonPaul and Müsing.

This bow is very interesting to consider if you’re upgrading from the bow that ‘came with’ your violin

With it’s $ 599 price it offers a lot of features for an amount lots of you are able or willing to pay for a bow.

It makes it a lot easier to learn off the string bowing like spiccato and ricochet. It’s light and easy to handle, making it your friend in fast runs.

You can’t really go wrong buying this bow as it can do all bow techniques you might need.

    How to compare with the Zlata Bow ? (the (Zlata)bow is however out of sale now I guess)

    Sound is quite good.

    • Violinist Zlata Brouwer

      Yes, it’s quite nice. Hmmm, I don’t have a Zlata bow here to compare it to. I’d say the main difference is that the Fiddlerman is lighter.
