Violin bows

October 21, 2017, 11:48 AM · Ratings of Cadenza violin bows particularly the 302, which I have, and the others. I play in a small ensemble of 12 but not ready for the road!

Thanks for your comment

In terms of a professional it would propably rate poor, the price range of a professional however is easily going to 100times your bow. In terms of a beginner it might rate good, depending on the specific bow. There are always differences between bows of the same line.
It depends on so many factors, you, the bow, the violin, the technics you can play, I cannot answer if this bow is good for you.
