Hi guys, i'm playing the violin for four years now and finally i decided to buy my own violin because i was renting one. I bought a violin but it didn't came with a bow and now my question is if it would be smarter to buy a carbon bow than a wooden bow since the carbon bows are 'newer' and are almost unbreakable. Help me plz 🙂
Here is the link for the wooden bow: http://www.arc-verona.co.uk/st.....4.181.html

Its a matter of personal taste and preference IMO. The better the quality the better the sound is produced and the longer it will last you. That being said, I am probably gonna get a better. The cf are supposed to be lighter and therefore "easier" to throw around for those of us who havent built up those playing muscles. I am a fan of puttin in the work to built those muscles and developing control. As far as playing in moist conditions, I dont so I dont have those issues. I have a $50 bow now and played outdoors yesterday for 2 hours and noticed only my shoulder and left arm got real tired, but the bowing seemed the same. But I live in Fl and the humidity only got to 60% yesterday evening, so its not as moist as in the NW. I will say that going to a shop and trying out a bunch of different ones as well as reading FM reviews will be much helpfull in your choosing.
