I have recently bought a cheap synthetic haired bow, because I have lost the one before it. After I got it, the instrument seems to give a 'scratchy/sticky' sound.
I haven't been playing the instrument for a while, so it could be that my skill has faded, or there seems to be a big problem with the bow.
So I wanted to know about 1) the difference a quality of the bow can make, and 2) tips for getting less 'scratchy/sticky' sounds on a higher note.
