Hi, I am maybe considering getting a new bow for around $3000. I saw that some of the Hill bows are around this price. Basically, I am looking for something to fill in for my Bazin bow's weaknesses. The Bazin pulls a nice, rich sound out of my violin, but it is very slow and too flexible so it doesn't respond well to spiccato, richochet, etc. Are Hill bows better suited for this?
Or, would it be better to get this kind of bow from another maker? Can anybody suggest any?
Lastly, does anybody recommend commisioning the bow from a reputable maker? Can anybody suggest some makers that do these comissions?
