In the new 3rd generation model, the main change is the design of the bow, which provides a rich and fuller sound.
These changes in the bow also mean lower notes including bell notes are clearer, easier to play and importantly really accurate in pitching.
There are some aesthetic changes also. The mouthpiece cap also changes from metal to plastic. The whole model is wrapped up in the new “FQ” case, which is lighter than the original and in addition gives that extra feel of security that kids can be seen, especially when walking to and from school.
