Hey everyone, I'm a high school student looking to buy my own bow, as I have been getting a lot more serious with my playing and my school issued mystery carbon fiber bow just isn't cutting it anymore. My price range is at most $300, and I have heard good things about gollihur music. I notice that they have a pernambuco bow for $246, but that seems a bit too cheap for a pernambuco bow so I'm pretty weary about it. Anyone have any experience with their french pernambuco bows? Would this bow be good enough to last me through high school? I'm curently a sophmore and I plan on auditioning for youth symphony this spring and all state sometime later in high school. I'd really prefer a wooden bow because I just haven't gotten sold on synthetic materials considering the poor quality of my current carbon fiber bow.
