CodabowAccessories: Quality comparison among the codabow diamond line
From Julianne Heinen
The Codabow has a series called "Diamond" and there are 3 models:
They are priced from low-high respectively. They claim on the website that the main difference is in appearance and that to know the sound difference you'll just have to find out with playing them.
Does anyone know if there is much sound quality difference among the 3 models or is it really just in fancy looks only?
From Gene WieWhen I tried the GX and SX sticks, I found the GX models to be somewhat warmer sounding, and the the SX models to be brighter and punchier. I don't personally have a preference, although in general I'm not a huge fan of the Codabow line.

As far as carbon fiber goes, in the past I had a wonderful Arcus Concerto that I really enjoyed playing until I sold it to help pay for an equally wonderful old French bow! On viola I acquired a Benoit Rolland Spiccato bow that I've been getting more attached to (being able to adjust the camber to right where I want it is surprisingly awesome).
