  • Paul Phillips

    Chicago Symphony Orchestra

    For almost the last year I have been using the Marquise bow instead of playing on my very fine French bow which is a Nicholas Maire valued at over $50,000. I find that the bow draws a beautiful sound from my violin and most people think that it sounds as good as my French bow. It is of course very flexible but still very strong. When playing off the string passages or spicatto in other words, it responds perfectly.

  • Zhan Shu

    Pittsburgh Symphony

    Quite impressed. Responds easily and quickly. Broad tonal palette. Would be excellent for outdoor concerts without feeling like I’m compromising on quality.

  • Andy Reiner

    professional artist

    It responded to my every musical whim. Ultimately I felt that the feel and sound were just fantastic and a huge leap from my original CodaBow. I will be excited to recommend the Marquise as well continuing to recommend the rest of the lineup.

  • Chris Murphy

    Professional Artist

    It is so rare to find a bow with depth, complexity, and dependability with such a great price tag. CodaBow has done it again with another great bow. If you're a professional violinist, I can't think of a more valuable tool to add your tool kit.
