The name of these bows is confusing. I can`t make out if the maker is called Theodore Ebony . Is the bow made of Ebony ? No. It`s very cheap . The wood is brown . It`s not carbon fibre .
Out of curiosity I sent for a 3/4 size bow to see if my shortish arms will feel more comfortable with it . Lurking in my mind is the worry about sloping ceilings and large thick beams in my top floor rooms . It`s a few inches shorter than a 4/4 bow .
When it arrived the horse hair was brand new . It takes a while to get the rosin onto the hair . If 3/4 bows are maybe for young new players a little instruction sheet would be a help .
But this bow works just fine. First test is long straight bows and there is no jittery tendency. I bought a new German bow once that was almost impossible in long bows .This Theodore stick does all the staccato ,spicatto moves perfectly .I can`t believe how well it works for just over £16 . The balance is good .Weight is 65,5 grams . The octagonal shape might add a tiny bit of weight .
To me it feels just like a Pernambuco bow That`s what counts . What it feels like .No unusual adjustments are needed .So ----- recommended .
