    Ok, so I need a bow. My Fiddlerman carbon bow just broke, so now I have no bow.

    I was thinking, I could buy a new one, but I thought some of y’all may have a bunch that you don’t use that you wouldn’t mind parting with for a reasonable sum.

    So, do any of y’all have a decent bow that you don’t use that you could sell me? If you do, please comment here or send me an email at gunnarsalyer@ gmail.com

    Thanks

    Maybe you can use a little super glue and then end up getting a new one if you get a  2021 Lion’s Den Award!  Is that the only bow you have?  What were you playing when it broke?

    Not a super glue fix, the frog stripped so it won’t tighten. It’s my only bow, and I wasn’t playing when it broke, I was about to and it wouldn’t tension.

    I’m sorry! That happened to me a couple months ago. Try eBay- there was quite a few good ones pretty cheap. Also, fiddleman has the scratch and dent sort of seconds and they were fairly reasonable too.

    New brass frog nut is only a dollar.

    There is no standard threads for frogs, but a violin shop can match it up, or just ask fiddlerman to send you one.

    Fiddlerman is sending me a new bow as it was under warranty. In the meantime I had stuck some copper thread through the nut as a stop gap measure.
