@elcbk - Yes, it's a viola bow and I find that I often use the entire length and I'm big enough that I don't find it too large.
There was no difference in length between my Violin bows and all the Viola bows I tried, just weight.
I like the brown weave, too.
Enjoy your new bow!
I got small tees for some of the Grandkids - guess they won't be advertising for Fiddlershop, since they're worn as nightshirts... the Kids have a little growing to do.
I got the tees for the Kids kinda as a subliminal gesture - can't surround them with enough fiddle-talk & music! 😄 Would be better if they were grown up enough to wear as shirts - then, when out & about... people will ask them if they play the fiddle.
Yeah, I'm trying to convert the whole family.
Sneaky, aren't I?
You've still got plenty of time to get a recording in - if you were playing seated in an orchestra, then bowing would be more important.
You'll be wonderful!
Glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving!
We had a pretty full crazy house here - it was GREAT! I had stuff for the Kids to do, then they were in & out the rest of the afternoon/evening, playing games with me. They each wanted time to try some 'pizzicato' on Edgar and use my bow for a little 'tremolo'. (lol) Had to remind them not to put fingers on the bow hair, but they had fun. First time our Daughter & Son-in-law prepared all the food here, so I got to play background music while they were busy & the Kids occupied.
What the heck? We all must not be sending you enough positive energy!
It's good to know the Doctors are staying on top of this, but it's terrible they couldn't fix anything during that procedure - very scary.
You are way ahead of me on Christmas Carols this year - I've only started playing the Wexford Carol.
