Several months ago, one of my students was looking for a full size bow to purchase, and I was happy to try out some for her.
This student was still at the very beginning, and did not want to spend much money for the bow.
I usually like wooden bows over synthetic materials. However, among the bows I tried in the same price range in the shop, one bow stood out, which was Jon Paul Vivrant violin bow. It produced a focused, clean, clear, strong sound. It was a woven carbon fiber bow, nickel-silver mounted.
My student also had a very good impression immediately, so it was a buy for her.
The price is about $194.
In this price range, this bow is good quality and playability.
Thank you, Jon Paul ! Jon Paul: http://www.jonpaulbows.com/vibrant.aspx
