Ken

In an earlier post in this thread I did say,

"I realise that even though it's 'Pernambuco', it's not a magic wand that will make all of my bowing problems go away. But it would have been nice if it was endorsed by Harry Potter"

But I'm sure that you would agree, as a worker with wood, that the best possible tools will give the best possible result.

I would rather have a bow that is superior to my abilities than one that is less. At least that way I know that if I'm bowing badly the problem is 'me' and not the tool. :)

Sorry John, if it sounded like a direct hit on you, it wasn't. Nor was it intended or directed at any other members in or out of this forum.

I was only saying that I was thinking about getting the P-Bow myself until I realized that it's not really the bow that let's me play good or bad at times, it's my skill level and how I feel about myself the way I'm playing at the time.

And,,,, I didn't make that statement to try and deter anyone from buying the P-Bow. If it come's from, "Fiddlershop" you know it's of high quality. Pierre doesn't sell junk.

I hope I'm clear on the subject.  smile

@Fiddlestix 

Ken 

No problems mate. I didn't take it that way at all :)

I was only pointing out that I 'did realise' that having the best bow on the planet won't make me a good fiddler. It's all up to hard work over a long time. It's just that good tools make the job easier ;)

And I think that the hair on my FM CF bow is getting a bit tired. So why not 'upgrade'.

I'm sure that my next post will sound much like the last. Even if I bought a genuine Stradrofl

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

Yes, I saw it. Mike said that it may happen.

I just hope now that I haven't suggested something that could be detrimental to your sales. :)
