    Yes I've seen it and was at the preliminary video footage. It was done at ball state university, my prof. Hans Sturm was the nuts and bolts behind the operation. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a master of the French bow show and give great ideas. Lots of footage.

    Do you guys think its worth the $85? I'm really interested in it. Rabbath is a great player and I am infatuated with perfecting the nuance of the bow stroke right now. So, I have been drooling over this.

    What do you guys think?

    Definitely worth it. There is over 14 hours of footage with interviews and performances when using all the angles. It's a must have. You can really learn so much from it.
