Thread Name: Recommended beginner fiddle bows?
Subject: RE: Tech: Recommended beginner fiddle bows?
I have a Cosa Aspire carbon graphite as my backup bow. It retails at $265 but you can pick them up new for about $220. For the money, it's a great bow. My only complaint is that it's response is not very fast, but it is very stable and easy to play. I sometimes use it when I am trying to learn something hard or just having an off day.
There's a Coda Colours (same bow, but in pretty iridescent finish), 1 year old on eBay for $200 "Buy It Now" today. Great deal, but might need rehair.
