Are almost all the great bows, round bows? Or have great players played with octagonal bows as well? Do the great makers of today make both octagonal bows and round bows, or is it just round bows? In other words, where do octagonal bows fit in the world of great old and modern bows?
To say it in another way: if you had 4,000 to spend on a great modern maker, would you consider octogonal bows, or would you strictly look at round bows?
Another queston: what are the baisc charateristic differences between round and octogonal bows?
