Coda Bows

The bow makers and engineers at CodaBow use advanced materials to bring consistency and affordability to their great bow designs. CodaBow's graphite and kevlar bow sticks have the same performance agility and tone-drawing capability as fine wood bows that are several times more expensive. Whether for use as a primary performance bow or as a travel / backup bow, there can be little doubt that CodaBow bows represent some of the best value in the strings industry. If you’re looking to invest in a bow, the question then becomes not whether to choose a CodaBow but which CodaBow to choose. The following guide breaks down the choices for you to aid in your decision-making process.

Electric Instruments

We have been playing electric instruments for over 35 years and have seen many designs come and go. We do not sell every electric instrument and pickup on the market. We sell the gear we have tried and liked the sound, reliability, and design. Many professional musicians come to us for electrifying their instruments for Rock, Jazz, Irish and Bluegrass. We have played all the electric instruments on this page. More importantly we have recommended them to our clients and have gotten wonderful feedback.
