I have been playing on a Bernd Dolling French bass bow for the past year, and I think it is one of the best modern bows I have played. Many of my Chicago colleagues also play on these sticks. Do any other Talkbassers play these bows? I am much more impressed generally with Berd Dolling sticks than I am with Michael Dolling sticks.
I have been playing mine for about a year now as well. Beautiful bow. When shopping for bows I played bows by Berndt, Michael, and Otto and I found the Berndt Dolling stick was a superior german bow in all respects.
