Violinists know that their ability to generate clean, clear, and colourful notes is only possible with an expertly crafted and well-designed violin bow - like Endeavour Pernambuco bows.
The importance of a great-quality Pernambuco violin bow therfore cannot be overstated. The bow is a crucial component in a violinist’s list of accessories, as it makes up half of the playing action on any instrument. This incredible bow delivers the best cost-to-performance quotient we’ve seen, and it has been used by countless professional violinists who appreciate its perfect camber, exacting tonal qualities, and ideal weight and balance. Each Pernambuco violin bow is crafted of high quality Pernambuco wood and features a fully-lined sterling ebony frog, silver winding, and a genuine leather grip. The naturally white and unbleached Mongolian stallion horsehair helps deliver perfect tones and ideal playability for all violinist levels.
