Sorry if theres lots on this topic already, but I couldn't find it. I want to get a better bow than the cheap one that came with my bass, but I'm struggling to pay the rent with gigging, and mainly play jazz piz, so can't really spend much money. so, therefore, I'm going to be spending some time looking in junk shops, auctions etc, including a musical instrument auction I'm going to tommorow. Can anyone give me some advice on getting some idea whether a bow is any good when you haven't got a bass to hand? things to lokk for? I know that ideally you would try it out on your bass, but I'm talking about lucky cheap finds, not real bow shopping!
