It seems like every bow I've had eventually warps. I know this can be fixed by a re-cambering, but is there any way to prevent it happening? I'm looking to get a more expensive bow fairly soon, but don't want to invest such a large amount if it's going to warp just like the cheaper bows I have been getting (around the AUD$250).
I always loose my bow when finished playing, so it's not under any stress in the case, so I'm not sure.
It is just because it's a cheap bow, or are there other things I can do to prevent this? One option I am thinking of is keeping a cheaper bow to practice with, and then have another bow just for concert performances. Also thinking about carbon fibre - do these warp with time?
