Has anyone compared a carbon fiber bow to a nice pernambuco bow? I currently have a CodaBow Conservatory and was wondering how much i'd have to spend to find a bow that sounds/plays considerably better than my current bow. I know that his question is very subjective, but I don't know much about bows and I guess i'm asking for help. Also, is there a rule of thumb when it comes to price? Obviously spending the most that I can afford to is an easy answer, but I thought I read somewhere that a good rule of thumb is that the bow should be half the price of the violin. I also read (of course it may not be true) that a good bow can make a fine violin sound like a violin twice it's price range. Any help is appreciated!
