I recently posted about buying a new violin, you people were so helpful and responsive. thank you!!! I learned a lot. I also recieved a lot of feedback about not forgetting to get a good bow. Forgive me if I sound ignorant, (cause i am in this aspect) I just thought a violin set-up came with a bow. It never occured to me to look for one seperately. What makes a good bow? What are the differences playing on one? LOL, I am so ignorant on this topic that i dont even know how ask what I want to know. Would a beginner like me be able to tell a difference right away?
I'll get my new violin, but cash is short so's a new bow would be sometime in the near future. (late summer perhaps) I'll have to play on my old one or what ever comes with the violin.
I'm just looking to learn all I can right now, so's the proper decisions can be made when the time comes.
Gosh, I almost miss the old days when Teach would hand me my viola for the year, (I play violin now) and that viola seemed like a gift from God to me. I never questioned what kind of instrument it was.
