    Bob has some "easier to remember" URL as well, but I can never remember it.

    And he really is great.

    -dh (I'm just thinking how cool it is to be a bass player and have the resources available that we have. G*t*r and p*n* players don't have anything like talkbass, the bottom line, or Bob Gollihur).

    Add me to the list. I ordered one of Bob's German bows to use on tour and I like it better than the Ary bow I have!

    I was recently in Japan doing performances and used an Orient bass (quite nice, fully carved) and a bow by by T. Sugito (www.sugito-bow.co.jp/profile.html ). The sugito bow was fabulous!! (also 10 or 12 times more expensive than Bob's but that'sanother issue!!). Does anyone have any experience with them here?

    It can't be said enough, Bob's a great guy to do business with and these bows are exactly as advertised. I bought both a French and a German bow a few months ago and I couldn't be happier. These bows are a huge step up from my rental fiberglass bow. My instructor was shocked at the quality of the bows, especially for the price, and has been recommending them to all of his students.

    Thanks Bob.

    One more... I received my German bow from Bob a couple of weeks ago. Excellent bow, typically excellent service. All hail.

    Sugito bows are very popular in Japan, especially in beginners and students. Some professionals endorse his bow.
    I bought a Sugito French bow in Japan 6 years ago. It's by K. Sugito (Koji Sugito), possibly 950 from what I spent for (950's MSRP is 95,000 yen, approx. $900). When I selected one from about 20 bows, it was very hard because they are all well crafted and balanced.

    This one was made by T. Sugito and was maybe a step up from the model you describe (in the $1200-$1500 range) Very responsive and well balanced. They've invited me to visit the workshop the next time I'm in Japan.... I hope we have a strong dollar by then! It will be very hard not to walk away with one of their bows, I think!!
  14. add me to the list
    i bought a german bow + case for it + rosin

    shipping cost + tax became a bit salty so people pray for me so with the grace of heavens i shall receive a better bow than the average cheap bow and people in the streets will tell me: what a nice german bow you have!!! and then my teacha will say: this is the best bow i have ever used!!! :D .....

    uhm... maybe i'm asking/dreaming too much.. :rollno:
    and my english sucks sometimes...

    i'll let you know what are my results with this bow
  15. Great....also let us know what your signature means.

  18. I recieved my bow from Bob G. today and it's great. French Brasilwood. It's a big step up from my old POS bow and I can join in on the kudos! Thanks. :)

    Yep, the Bob G. bows are good for the money. I got my German bow last week and it feels much nicer than my Glasser fiberglass bow. The strings start easier and the sound is less strident.

    Unfortunately, I did not have the opportunity to try a bunch of more expensive bows but I felt I had to move up from the Glasser, and I'm glad I did. It is a noticeable improvement. The Bob G. German weights slightly more than the Glasser and requires less work to get a nice full sound.

    I would tell you the exact weight by my wife's little plastic Weight Watcher's scale is somewhat less than accurate.

    Cheers . . .
