Many musicians around the globe are playing a Müsing bow these days. But actually only a few of these players are known to us as the majority of the Müsing bows are sold through our dealers.
So we would be all the more pleased if you share your experiences with us and leave a short review or comment below.
Karl Varnai, musician
"...playing with the C5 carbon fiber bow at the 38th annual Wind Gap Bluegrass Festival in Pennsylvania couple of days ago. Loved the quick response and subtle nuances of playing Appalachian Old Time and Minstrel Era Rags with this bow.
This has become my favorite bow."
Alexa Friedel, musician
"I wish I had known about the Müsing C5 earlier! Not only is it much lighter and faster than my old wooden bow, it also sounds much better. Since I got it, I can't stop playing..."
Tom L., musician
"[...] I have no trouble with anything I play using the C2 and have never thought while playing, "Oh, if only I had my good wood bow in hand." I'm telling you this because if any fiddlers inquire about a Musing bow, you can tell them my experience and tell them that the lower grade, C2, might be all they need for Irish fiddling. [...] Since I'm retired, I live part of the year in Minnesota and part in Texas. Texas heat, and Minnesota cold, can both be hard on wooden musical instruments, but I can now go out in heat or cold with my C2 [...] with much, much less worry."
Jacob Thierfelder, Violin maker
"The Müsing bows are designed in a way that makes the player play more confidently and easily right from the beginning, and at the same time forgive mistakes. Compared to wooden bows they have a much higher resilience, resonance and break resistance. [...] With the Müsing bows my instruments have a much better response and a fuller sound. After some tests I was so convinced of these bows that I ordered a range for violin and viola."
Bruno Antonio Buike
"The Müsing C2 violin bow arrived today - and I am totally blown away. I hadn't imagined the improvement in sound (and playing) to be so great. The Youtube video with the bow comparison is a strong 'understatement'! Honestly, I have NEVER experienced anything like this in terms of SOUND!
