C8E5B980-5C59-4F26-A493-2A4A20D52FF4.jpegImage EnlargerI have some violin bow tips that I need to replace.  It seems that the type called “tip armor” seems to be innovative and not too expensive.  Has anyone tried them?

Thank you Fiddlerman.  I want to try a variety of bows to get an understanding of what a good (or in my case, better than bad) bow feels like before I start making bamboo bows.  I am enjoying the Yellow Sandalwood bow I just purchased from your shop.  I have a few interesting bows I purchased in need of repair.  I will give the tip armor a try.

Good luck with it Irv. Glad you like the Sandalwood bow. I honestly think it's a bargain compared to other wooden bows and the way it plays.
