GUEST,Donald Difference in fiddle bows? (60* d) RE: Difference in fiddle bows? 06 Mar 06

How the devil are you - nice to see you in Fartlington recently.

A decent bow is expensive because it's just so hard to get the balance spot-on. A cheap bow feels heavy and tiring to play, and is not as responsive in the hand. You just can't play the trickier phrases as cleanly with an el cheapo bow.

"I have asked a few fiddle player and the only answer they have come up with is that a fiddle player just knows."

Alas this is true! Here's a link that may lift the veil of secrecy a little!
