    Has anybody bought, heard or had any experiences with bows on ebay? I've seen a few for between 70 for Brazilwood and 190 for Pernambuco from China and I wanted to see of any of you have feed back before I plunck down the bread without first playing them of course.
     
  2. I would be hesitant to buy a bow off of ebay, but at the prices you're talking I guess you probably don't stand to lose much. I do know that there are some pretty decent mid range bows coming from china these days, so don't let that bother you. I just don't know about the ebay thing.

    I bought a brazilwood off ebay for $70. Way better than the fiberglass one I used to have...
