Playing Qualities: I found you had to play this bow for a while to get to know its strengths and weaknesses. It’s not a whippy Tubbs but does have a supple quality to it.  It’s ideal for a player that likes to draw rather than force the sound out of the violin. Especially good control at the tip. .
