Features & Benefits of this Codabow:

  • Graphite Diamond Weave: The Graphite Diamond Weave is woven in Codabow’s traditional design, to produce the highly sought balance between strength and balance. The fibres extend from the button to the tip of the bow, ensuring an evenness of balance across the entirety of the bow.
  • 100% Kevlar Acoustic Core: The Pure Kevlar acoustic core fibres which run through the bow helps to provide more power in the bowing action, whilst still offering the natural sensitivity and tonal characteristics of fine Pernambuco wood.
  • Turbo Design Xebony Frog: The Turbo Design frog made by Walter Paulus, is made out of one of the only resourceful alternatives to the threatened supply of Ebony which has been named Xebony. This material provides a natural feel which continues to impress bow makers and performers alike. The Turbo Design preserves playing position while maintaining dynamic balance, while allowing the maximum amount of hair length to be utilised.
  • Crafted from Xebony: XEBONY® is an elegant solution to the world’s endangered supply of instrument-grade Ebony. Comprised of organic fibres and resin, XEBONY® boasts a rich lustre and natural grain that impresses players and bow makers alike. Stronger and more durable than natural Ebony, XEBONY® offers improved performance while conserving our endangered resources.
  • GlobalBow™: Contains no endangered, regulated, or monitored species (wildlife or fauna), and pass freely through international Customs so players avoid the travel concerns of traditional bows.
