Springy bow advice
I got a new bow after spending a few hours at my closest local luthier (Duane Lasley for anyone in Seattle). It had come down to two but I chose the “easier” one.
I kept thinking about the other one so after about six weeks I chatted with Duane. He’s now given me the runner up bow to try and I can switch it out if I want.
After spending a few days with runner up bow I find it makes better sound but is a bit more challenging.
That’s okay, but what makes it more challenging is it’s super bouncy. Like there’s a very small tightness window (it’s right on the edge of being nearly too loose) for it to hit its awesome sound.
I am going to keep both for a bit longer, but am nearly certain runner up bow is my keeper.
I was wondering if any fiddlers have any suggestions for springy bows or things I should be aware of that may not be apparent.
