    I am trying out a couple different bows right now (one more reason to have a teacher) and was wondering if anyone here knew anything about the makers. They are both german-one is a W. Seifert, and the other is an R. Peasold. I am not sure of the the weights and dont have a digital camera so, unfortunately no pics.
    TIA

    I have played a W. Seifert bow. It was a good stick.

    I tried Don's Bow today.. Nice bow.. I forgot how good those were. I haven't played one on over 20 years.

    So far, of the two bows that I originally posted about-Seifert and Peasold, I think I like the Peasold better. It seems to have a darker sound than the Seifert. Maybe not as loud and clear as the Seifert though?? But what do I know, Im playing a Kay with it?

    The test continues...
