Brazilwood is another of the New World species of hardwoods traditionally used for instrument and bow making. It's more plentiful than pernambuco, softer and easier to work, therefore a less expensive material. When carefully crafted, Brazilwood makes a good beginner bow. We often find the sound produced is softer, rounder, and more mellow than pernambuco.
You benefit because Lemur Music buys according to stringent specs. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the quality, workmanship, and playability of these durable entry-level wooden bows.
