【 Choosing a bow 】
Are you looking for a suitable bow? Is your bow not producing the type of sound you envisioned?
Here’s some tips on how to choose the right bow in my blog post: link in bio 🎻
See how @alexandersouptel , a former concert master of Singapore Symphony Orchestra, tested one of the handmade Pernambuco bows (from Shaojun Violin Shop) using the delicately controlled Oistrakh Bow Test. The test observes the good natural bounce and excellent balance of the bow.

There is also a selection of antique bows available. If you’re considering one, bring your violin and bow down to the shop and test them out to hear the difference. That’d be in Phase 2 of post-circuit breaker.
Feel free to fix a zoom appointment if you’d like a consultation, a preliminary round of testing, or just to see the bows more clearly.
