I'm trying out a new bow. It's an Indian bow, called a gaz, that is used for playing the dilruba.

Thanks for posting, sounds like the Indian bow really grabs the string when you bow, seem to have a very strong attack when you bow, a lot like a baroque bow.

Seems that the extra weight helps with that instrument. But sometimes the sound is too pressed and crushed. I didn't notice the crushing sound with your regular bow.

Yeah, it's going to take some time to get used to the new bow and learn to use it accurately and properly. Definitely helps with the volume though.

True. Like anything in life, you have to get used to it.
