CodaBow Diamond GX violin bow, Alabaster XEBONY® upgrade
This Diamond GX is the crown jewel of CodaBow's new line of solid-care bows, offering incredible performance at less than half the price of a comparable wood bow. This beautiful Diamond GX has the upgraded Alabaster XEBONY® frog and button. Quick in the hand and perfectly balanced, this is a bow players at any level would love to have in their case. Electric Violin Shop is an authorized CodaBow dealer.
CodaBow's new Diamond series bows are an amazing value for the money, offering outstanding performance for much less than a pernambuco bow of similar quality would cost. A graphite diamond weave with the appearance of carbon fiber is wrapped around an acoustic Kevlar core. The result is a stick that is springy and supple enough for fast and fancy bow-work, yet stiff enough to draw a strong tone from both acoustic and electric violins.
The Diamond GX is the top entry in the Diamond line, quicker in the hand and more perfectly balanced than either the entry-level Diamond NX or the intermediate Diamond SX. The difference is mostly noticed when attempting flying spicatto and other challenging bow acrobatics, but for higher-level players, it is quite noticeable, and notable if you perform the fancier bowing styles frequently.
The tone the CodaBow Diamond GX produces from most violins rivals that of a fine pernambuco bow - and it is (almost) unbreakable!
This particular Diamond GX is one of only a few currently available that have the upgraded alabaster XEBONY® frog and button, giving the bow a classy, expensive look without the use of endangered or regulated materials.
