I´ve been wondering, since a violin can develop quite a lot with age, if a new bow also will develop or change in character and playability. If a bow is soft when new, will it always stay soft or will the wood stiffen and vice versa? Is what you feel and hear when you try it what you will have in the future as well? I thought it might be good to know before considering any of the cheap and, what it seems, still very price worthy Chinese bows that are starting to show up almost every where.
I hope that you very well informed colleagues can help enlighten me in this matter! Thanx!
