New Bow and Strings
So today I got a new violin bow and new Dominant strings. What are some things I can do to help with the adjustment, both for me and the instrument?
Practice. Sometimes you have to marry the thing.
Take up sewing.
Play on it...? In my experience, that's the only way to get used to a new bow. I have heard of a method to make strings break-in faster where you play scales in different positions so that you press on the whole length of the string.
Thanks Jeff and Mike. Paul, not sure where you're going with that.
