I was presented a bow by my teacher from a fellow player. They are both accomplished i.e. orchestra players. The bow is a chinese made snake wood bow and the asking price is $350. My teacher said it is a good bow and I played it but am a beginner so my experience is limited. He offered to let me use it for a bit.... Based on what I've read here on Talkbass... I am not sure if $350 is fair or if I should try out some more bows in this price range or try my luck on ebay/used for a better price. The bow draws good sound and felt balanced but a bit heavy. I was alos interested in CF and Gollihur pernam. bows for instance. Just looking for some advice... Thanks.
