About this Violin Bow Comparison Lesson

In this video, I do a detailed violin bow comparison between Brazilwood material vs. Pernambuco.

A Pernambuco bow is what most violin players covet. The difference between a Pernambuco bow and a Brazilwood bow is significant.

You'll notice with a Pernambuco bow, the warmth of the sound on your violin will be much better. Also, your ability to get a cleaner sound out of the instrument is also significant.

Even as a beginner with around one year of experience, you'll notice a significant improvement in sound when trying out a Pernambuco violin bow. They start reasonably at $200.
