Can't find answers in the search, maybe I'm phrasing wrong...but here goes? How often do you need rosin? I just started playing bass with the school orchestra three weeks ago, twice a week and haven't applied rosin to my bow since joining. Noone else uses my bow or bass, so I know noone else is doing it, but it still sounds pretty good. Do I need to soon? How do you apply rosin And I'm looking at getting a bass for Christmas, an Englehardt EM-1, and will most likely order the bow from Bob Gollihur as well. I play with a French bow at school, so I figure it's best not to play something different at home since I'm still a beginner. How are Bob's Brazilwood Bass Bows?
