About this bow:
If you only cared about the playability and tone of your bow, this is the bow to buy. IPE is a fast growing wood that has physical properties that is 90% of a top pernambuco. This makes it an extremely good source of wood for making bows. While this wood is more commonly adopted in Europe and among European makers, it is less commonly used in US and Asia. But in many double blind tests, this bow has outperformed pernambuco bows. Many European bow makers have used IPE and has continued to use it for their bow lineups, and some have even won prestigious bow making competitions using IPE bows. The best advantage IPE has over pernambuco is cost. It is a fast growing tree and hence it is easily replenished.
Another advantage is the texture is very close to a pernambuco bow. In fact, we have observed many vendors to sell IPE bows as pernambuco, probably to make it easy for people to understand about the quality. But here at Old Violin House, we want to promote IPE bows actively. Moreover, you will be doing something positive for the environment (Brazilian Pernambuco Forest in particular) if you choose this bow.
