Where does one access a decent 3/4 bow from? For ethical reasons, I would actually prefer a carbon fibre, but as far as I can deduce, only Coda do a 3/4 and that is only in their Prodigy line. Or there is a Glasser (I think), but I associate them with the fibreglass clunkers, and I'm a bit confused about the model names for their carbon bows. If anyone is more sure, you could help me out here.
Think of all those 10 year old Asian prodigies, They're definitely on fractional instruments, and I mean they're not gonna all be playing on a AUS$70.00 (around $50 US) stick like I am, are they, so they must be getting a better bow from somewhere. I have shops keeping an eye out for me, but so far nothing.
If anyone can suggest a direction for me to turn to, I'll be happy.
Going 3/4 has been the best thing for my playing since getting a great teacher. Getting an advancing bow would be another great step.
