: I 've seen this bow on ebay and I've been wondering if it was any good. It lists that it is brazilwood with an ebony frog but does that make it good quality. Yiu can view it using the link.

I bought one, and it's a little nicer than the Glaeser I've been using. It's lighter, and seems to have a clearer tone. The hair is very different from my Glaeser, not holding rosin as well.

But the seller was a bit difficult- never answered e-mails and then lied about it, claiming he had been changing e-mail providers. Unfortunately I had seen him use that same excuse with other buyers on his feedback page over a period of months ;-)

Bottom line? For the money it's a good deal. Might be even better when re-haired.
