Thread Name: Difference in fiddle bows?
Subject: RE: Difference in fiddle bows?
I have a number of bows including a carbon fibre bow and I love it. It wasn't a cheap bow by any means. I have a cheap wooden bow but I haven't used it for a long time as the balance point wasn't right for me. I use a good viola bow when I am playing my octave violin. I feel the instrument requires a heavier bow to do it justice. I have a beautiful wooden bow and it plays beautifully. I bought it in Holland and the assistant in the shop let me try many bows and fiddles before I bought the ones I felt worked for me.
