CodaBow is the trusted partner of generations of string players the world over. For every style, station, and aspiration, their master makers have pioneered an unsurpassed design. We love CodaBow’s dedication to creating quality bows and we love their dedication to getting their bows into the hands of young musicians who have aspirations of being a musician, but who may not be able to afford a quality bow.
