I live about 130 miles from the nearest violin shop. I defiently need a new bow and a new viola. The bow is for the up and coming concert season in October because my current on needs duct tape (guess that is what happens when you buy a cheap second hand brazilwood bow). The viola is because the one I have now (student level) dosent handel (get it....Handel?) very well. It feels uncomfortable to play. When I do get these rare chances to go to a violin shop, there is so much to chose from. I get overwhelmed. Any particular thing s I should look for in bows and insturments other than they sound good and are easy to play?
