The Standard bow will very capably carry a beginner to Grade 3, providing a very solid platform for any aspiring pupil to establish proficiency in all aspects of beginner's technique.  Nimble, and light under the hand, the bow very easily yields a sweet and bright sound from the violin. The stick is strong and provides an even and consistent sound along the entire length of the bow.  Unlike many beginners' bows, the Sound Choice Standard bow handles very steadily, allowing beginners to perform technique such as staccato (bouncing of the bow) with ease and control. Handmade by highly skilled luthiers from the bow-making atelier of world famous maker Ma-Rong-Di, Maestro Archetier, these bows outperform other bows in this price range and perform similarly to more highly priced Pernambuco bows.  Highly recommended for any beginner!




Coruss


Each Sound Choice bow is strung with our synthetic hair of choice, Coruss. Coruss is a superior quality synthetic hair, that rivals or surpasses horse hair in parameters of performance and durability, and no horses have been harmed during its production.

Rosin


The surface of horse hair is barbed; when horse hair makes contact with an instrument's strings, there is significant friction, which generates sound.  The surface of Coruss synthetic hair is extremely smooth, consequently, it requires a far stickier rosin than horse hair in order to generate sound.  Prior to Coruss developing Coruss rosin, we recommended customers use a base layer of Pops rosin, followed by Evah Pirazzi rosin.   Now we recommend all Coruss customers use Coruss rosin;  it sticks to the hair quickly, and produces a pure sound.
