“You can get a great range of sounds and range of bow strokes out of a carbon fiber bow, without really changing anything about the way that you’re playing your instrument.”
David Auerbach, master violist and renowned teacher, performs with a CodaBow carbon fiber viola bow regularly, especially for outdoor performances. For the price point, he thinks CodaBow violin, viola, and cello bows are versatile, and good for everything needed for professional performances.
Mr. Auerbach recently shared his thoughts on CodaBow, speaking to the misconception that carbon fiber bows are not capable of producing the great range of sounds a wood pernambuco bow offers. He also stated how a CodaBow is nearly indestructible, yet still sounds great, and that he’s able to produce great sound quality without changing his play style.
