: Hi,
: I am new to the double bass. I have been taking lessons with a French bow and I would like to know the advantages and disadvantages of the French vs. the German bow.

: Thanks
: Arnoldo

German style suits me, I feel looser(less tension) and don't have to "grip" the bow, it sits naturally in my hand. I believe that feeling is reflected in my sound. Give both a true test, use one for a month and then the other.
