Originally designed for 5-string electric violin, the Joule has proven to be an outstanding favorite amongst both acoustic and electric players. Its lively action and energetic response make it a popular choice for bluegrass, and other fiddle styles. Though not as powerful as the GX, the Joule projects a strong, rich tone, and is particularly quick to speak, with a distinct, articulated attack, and a lively bounce.

CodaBow Luma Violin Bow CodaBow Luma Violin Bow

Popular with Bluegrass and Jazz fiddlers, the CodaBow Luma offers the player an extraordinarily polished response, with little surface noise and a very clean attack. Its bite is not quick, but rather smooth - almost feathery. It weighs in at only 58 grams, allowing for enhanced agility and easy movement, and produces quite a strong, clear tone, for such a light stick. Also a good choice for students.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is J.S. Fisher Violins an Authorized CodaBow dealer?
    Yes. We have a long established relationship with CodaBow. We purchase CodaBow products directly from their workshop in Winona, Minnesota. And, we work together to answer customer questions and meet any service needs that arise.
  • What does the CodaBow warranty cover?
    Please see CodaBow's warranty page at: http://codabow.com/promise.html for a description of what is and is not covered under their warranty. The folks at CodaBow have always been friendly and professional, offering excellent service to our customers, both before and after the sale.
  • Where can I get my CodaBow rehaired? Are CodaBows rehaired in a special way?
    CodaBow bows are rehaired in the traditional way, and can be serviced by whomever you trust with your wooden bows. Or, if you prefer, you can contact CodaBow at 888-CODABOW to arrange service by mail. Their fees are very reasonable.
  • What rosin do you recommend for CodaBow bows?
    We recommend rosins based on desired playing characteristics and tone, style of music, type of strings, and other factors. And, there are certainly rosins that we recommend more highly than others for all bows. But, there is no one rosin that we recommend specifically for CodaBow bows. For more, please see our Guide to Rosin. When preparing bows for trial, we generally use a blend of Andrea Solo and Melos Light.
  • Are CodaBow bows available in a choice of colors?
    No. The CodaBow SX and Joule bows have a Natural Graphite (Grey) tint, and the rest are tinted brown. They are, however, quite attractive in either color - much more visually appealing than other carbon fiber bows.
