Wood Bows

Back to Bows

Fiddleheads offers a wide range of student to professional level wood bows providing outstanding price, quality, playability and aesthetics.

Most popular is the Simpatica line, which mostly consists of bows for beginners to professional players, and now with Baroque bows!

Each bow is inspected for straightness and playability by Rhiannon personally. Made in China for Fiddleheads.

Might we suggest carbon fibre?

Understanding the wood used in bowmaking:

From Wikipedia: Caesalpinia echinata is a species of Brazilian timber tree commonly known as Brazilwood, Pau-Brasil, Pau de Pernambuco and Ibirapitanga. The tree has a dense, orange-red heartwood that takes a high shine, and it is the premier wood used for making bows for string instruments.

From Rhiannon: Brazilwood is a lower grade pernambuco, suitable for beginner to advanced student bows. High grade pernambuco is more costly but provides for the best quality wooden stick material.
