so i have been away, still very busy with some projects and am coming back to v.com with a quick question. just glancing through the topics, thank heavens i have not been around. 3.6 mil violin, violinist sue to play with kids, violin bow set on fire, huh?,,, could really bring out my dark side.:)
anyway, here is my burning question on violin bow. my kid has been using my beloved 200 dollar violin bow for some time--beloved i think because it is cheap and fits my level of play. it has a tendency to tilt so that she tends to play on outer part of the hair, something i have not noticed since i don't play or play aggressively like her:)
one time, i was able to arrange to have her play a bunch of bows and she was very indifferent to every single one. to her: they were all OK. So, no deal.
because she has no interest to pursue violin seriously, no dream to become a performer (but i mandate her to become a good violin student at least through school years), we really do not need to get a great bow for the purpose of future performance or for investment purpose. i think anything that can be dropped onto the floor just like that has no investment purpose in my house:).
so here is my question: i need some direction in terms of short cuts. based on the way she plays,,,what type of bow, what maker should i look into further? is there such a thing that by looking at someone's playing style, you can suggest a type of bow?
