I've recently tried out a number of german bass bows and was interested in anyones experience with some of the makers I'm looking at. Recently tried a number of Reid Hudson's, both snakewood and pernambuco. I've only received good feedback on his bows from talkbass members...anyone else have impressions? Also looking for info on the following makers if you have played or heard anything about their work: Robert Dow, Rodney Mohr, Bernd & Michael Dolling, Matthias & Gunter Hoyer, Horst Schicker. Any others people like? I know how everyone feels about Sue Lipkins bows...I got to play one this past weekend, and after realizing it was exactly what I was looking for I was told it isn't really for sale. It certainly lived up to the hype, however. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
