I've been studying the bass for about 6 years now, and have been playing on the same Ary brazilwood bow since I started. Although it has served me well, I am ready to upgrade. I am looking to spend between 1000-2000 dollars on a pernambucco (and german grip) bow. I've seen some options on Lemur that I could try out in that price range, but I want to get some names of other bow makers I could try out, or the names of some pretty reputable makers. I'd appreciate any input you guys have.
