Hey, y’all. I’ve heard a lot of good on this site about the fiddlerman CF bow, and am wondering is it much better than a glasser basic fiberglass? Does anyone have experience with these two? I have a Glasser basic fiberglass bow, and want to know if it’s worth it to upgrade, or if that would be an upgrade?
I used a Glasser fiberglass when I first started back on the fiddle. I then upgraded to a Coda CF. I now call the old fiberglass bow “the club” and quit using it. The difference in both playing ease and sound is amazing. If you can, try out several CF bows and pick the one you both like the best and can afford.
Ok, I was specifically asking about the Fiddlerman CF bow, which I’ve heard is quite inexpensive. unfortunately I don’t have access to a shop where I could try multiple different bows (hey, guitar center, what CF bows do you have?) so I’m stuck online shopping, which is why I’m being specific. but if you have any specific CF bows to recommend, please do, and if you can link to it even better. my budget might allow up to about $100
I looked at a Coda but then thought, should I really have a bow that costs more than the fiddle ($200).? I bought a Cricket fiddle that came with a low-end CF bow and I thought it was fine, so I bought a coupe Glassers online.
Either all my bows are bad, or they’re all the same quality. They’re pretty interchangeable for me.
