I have recently started playing my violin again after a long 12 year break (I stopped when I was 16 and I’m now 28).
I have regretted giving it up for a long time, but avoided starting again because I feel so rusty and my skills have deteriorated so much. But I figure there is no time like the present, and with some practice hopefully I can get back to where I was!
So my question is, can anyone give me any recommendations for a new bow?
My current bow is a P&H, but it needs to be replaced because about half the hair has fallen out of it and it really isn’t sounding good.
I would like to upgrade to something that is perhaps suitable for an upper-intermediate player. I think my violin is quite nice and I would like to have a bow that complements it.
I really don’t know a lot about bows so any advice would be much appreciated!
