I am deciding between two bows and weighing the pros and cons. I really like the Ary 500 because it just sounds great with my bass. I have tried several bows and nothing sounds as good as this Ary. Its tone is rich compared to the Carbow. But I like the Carbow because its easier to play and a little lighter. Its got a good tone also and because its a Carbow. I guess this is a totally subjective thing, but what do you think would be most important: great sound that just makes it my bass come alive in a little heavier bow that might be a little more difficult to play or a nice, solid Carbow that handles nicely and also has an good sound, but may not sound quite as good as the Ary. Any comments appreciated.
