Pernambuco is the finest wood you can find in the world, and having a bow with pernambuco wood provides a huge advantage to playing the violin. Not every pernambuco bow is made equally. A good quality pernambuco bow is cut a certain way to where it provides the best balance and feel for violin players.
Many other pernambuco bows under $500 will not have the same balance and quality as this silver pernambuco bow that you can try out through my shop.
The bow has a beautiful whalebone grip, octogonal stick, has a fully lined ebony frog, parisian silver eye and solid silver button.
