: Re: Which is better: Fiberglass bow or cheap wood bow?

: I went to a music store that had a large selection of wood bows.
: Some were very expensive. I tried them, and a fiberglass bow with black
: horsehair. I could tell a difference in sound and feel, between the wood and
: fiberglass bow, but those differences were very small, while the difference
: in price between a fiberglass bow and the most inexpensive bow, was LARGE!

: I saw some bows that cost as much as a Bass itself. I have sensitive hearing
: and discriminating tastes, and it's my opinion that some of these wood bow
: sales are an embarrassing RIPOFF!

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

: P.S. Just make sure the fiberglass bow has REAL horsehair, white or black.
