My violin teacher suggested that I obtain a spare violin bow since I only have one. Because I am a college student with no money or time to go bow shopping, he suggested that I buy a carbon fiber bow, as many of them are cheap(er than a really high caliber wood bow) and will serve me well. Looking at the Sharmusic website, I am inundated by the huge number of carbon fiber bows that are out there. How in the world do I decide which one to buy? I just need a spare bow, so it's not like it will be my primary bow. But I do want it to be somewhat similar to my wood bow (60g, round stick, etc.). Any suggestions?
