I had a 1970's Glasser bow, back when the fiberglass was solid and strong. I've used that bow until one day, I closed the lid on it and it somehow cracked the tip off. (I donated the tip as the 1st ever fiberglass tip to my luthier's collection)
Then recently, a little kid that I mentor for our youth orchestra came to me and asked, "Is this supposed to happen?" He brought me one of the newer Glasser bows and Looked at it. She cracked it cleanly in half. I wasn't surprised but then I noted that the bow was hollow.
I don't know if any of you guys have any more information on hollow Glasser bows.Tweet
