: : I saw some bows that cost as much as a Bass itself. I have sensitive hearing

: : That statement sould raise a few eyebrows, never-the-less, that's the geezer's

: : advice.

: And I'll go out on a limb and guess while Geezer might have sensitive hearing

: and discriminating taste, he has no bow chops whatsoever, and that's why an expensive

: well-made bow sounds as bad in his hands as the inexpensive fiberglass bow.

Guess again "DK" (Some of us know who you are.)

My bow chops happen to be quite satisfactory at the present time, with both

wood bow and fiberglass bow. My teacher is a better judge about this as my

teacher has actually heard my "bow chops."

Now here's some geezer wisdom for all of you out there who will listen. Whenever

you shake up an established belief, (such as you can sound better by playing a

bow with an outragous price tag,) your going to hit a nerve and embarrass those

who have felt the sting. (Or outrage dealers in expensive bows.) They just might

write something about you to try and demean your ability, even though they've

never heard you. You may find it amusing but not much more. Enough said.
