Eastman cadenza 302 carbon fiber bow and others
I have a Cadenza 302 which I like. However I would like to know how it compares with other carbon fiber bows. I am aware of various differences, e.g. Violin, technique, ability etc. there are many opinions but I would like to hear from someone who knows. I am talking about playability.
For the price of the 302 you are probably getting a decent bow. I have the 305 and I like it a lot. In fact I have four of them (my bow, my daughter's bow, a spare bow, and a viola bow). But for the price of the 302 you're not going to get pernambuco cladding or silver mount. Nickel mount is just fine.
I use a Cadenza, although I don't know what model it is. My other carbon fiber bow is a Jon Paul Bravo, which I find to be less clean and not as responsive as the Cadenza.
