So I now kind of have an idea about high quality violins, next topic is a good bow.
I want to get this out there: I really like gold mounted bows, so if anyone knows of decent professional quality gold mounted bows, let me know.
Besides that, I need to know what price range the recent ones fall into, because I don't need anything super high end, but I don't want a stick the dog brought in either.
One of my bows right now is an A. Carvalho nickel mounted bow, about $500. Do you think that might be fine, or do I need something more high end? I have another by Antonio Giuliani, called the Giuliani pro bow, $300, if that's any good for pro playing.
I have a few in mind I can get on trial. They are from fiddlershop, one is a $660 pernambuco bow, and there's another pernambuco bow there too, and a few Jonpaul bows. Are these any good?
