Concertmaster Miran Kojian is impressed with Zarelon

Very good, I like the clarity of the sound, evenness of sound from one end to the other, articulates well in the spiccatto, and quite expressive. Mind you I am playing on a totally new bow, I like the feel in the hand, good feel and give in the expressive passages, although it is 60gr. it fulfills well in the ff passages.

Comparing with my Persois and Maire bows so far, I hear the difference in the overall warmth character of the sound, but value the clarity of the sound that is probably combined from the stick and the hair, I will have to rehair some of my bows soon to know better the quality of the hair.

I am very impressed of qualities that are coming out of the hair, CONGRATULATIONS, I think you have come out of something that is very impressive.

Thank you very much for sending it to me, I will also experiment with different rosins. and also different tension, I am little concerned to tighten the hair too much for not breaking the tip!!!! So far it is holding well, and as you told me loosen it completely before packing it at the end of the day.

Next weekend I am playing Concertmaster to the Nutcracker. I will show it to my colleagues.
