Thread Name: Difference in fiddle bows?
Subject: Difference in fiddle bows?
It is a question that was raised by delegates at a recent drinking conferance in Whitby recently.Why are some fiddle bows so expensive? and were lies the differance betwen a cheap one and more expensive ones?
In some cases more expensive than the fiddle itself.
I have asked a few fiddle player and the only answer they have come up with is that a fiddle player just knows.

Is this a closely guarded secret among the fiddle playing fraternity?

Constructive answers only Mr Oakley please !!!
