I'm a German player. Bow style I mean. I'm an Oklahoman bassist...anyways. I'm entering college this Summer and am planning on purchasing a Cleveland model New Standard Bass (if someone can explain to me whether the difference between their laminate and hybrid styles would really mean anything in a college symphony, that would be great) and I'd like to get a pretty good bow. Obviously I don't have have the money for the highest quality bow, but I'd still like to have something more respectable than the 10 cent fiberglass thing I'm somehow using right now, or the slightly more expensive but still crappy Arco Noveau thing I use at school.
