Hey I was talking to Barry and ask about bows. He mentioned a fiberglass bow. So I did some research and found these two bows. Just wanted to get some opinions/advice. Going next Tuesday to get my fiddle.
I'm planning on getting a better bow, too,
how about the glasser bow from nsamusicsupplies.com?
They are only $31 (I couldn't afford $100 bow).
The Glasser model for $31 is the same one that came with my Silver Creek violin (actually I two of them because when I returned my second Silver Creek I kept the Glasser bow and returned the violin with one of my Cecilio bows - bad me). But I actually like the Cecilio bows a little better. I don't know what it is but the balance seems better on the cheep Cecilio bows??? If I was you pky I would just save up the money to buy something better and worthy of changing out the horsehair down the road.
Terry that looks like a great violin shop. Seems they know their stuff. You could always call them with questions of the Glasser X series bows.
I am the one that bought a few bows from Sam (the guy selling bows on this site).
The first one I bought was a Vittore Ferra bow and just love it. I contacted him back to see if he had anymore and had one more so I bought it too.
I don't what to say Terry as I'm just a beginner learning and doing my research.
Maybe you could contact Sam on this forum. He did post a current ad here on the forum for what he has left. They are brand new bows and I am a happy camper right now thanks to that guy. What a difference a nice bow is helping with my playing right now.
