June 3, 2006 at 6:18 PMI'm playing a studio class today (my first one!). I also placed an order today for a carbon fiber bow, the Coda Classic. I know many purists turn their noses up at carbon fiber bows, but I think for the price $697, the classic is suppose to play like pernambuco bows worth much more. It should be interesting. I'm really looking forward to it.
Those of us living in NYC, are you tired of the rain yet?
Have fun with your new bow.
So... some people love the things for the price, some don't, some don't know anything about them and don't want to know, and some don't know anything but then are won over when they accidentally come across one... whatever...you'll now get to make up your own mind on the matter, which is what's most important, after all. The classic's I've seen are strong sticks and responsive. I hope you enjoy your new bow. Let me know what you think.
So rain isn't all bad nor all good, if you listen to the radio anyway.
