I hope someone on the group can help me this this question. I currently play Double Bass for the Band of the Grenadier Guards(as well as playing Tuba) and have studied with Kevin Rundell(Principal Bass,London Philharmonic).Obviously living in England,I have been taught to use French bow.When I leave the band I intend to move to Germany to hopefully get a job with a German orchestra.Will I have to learn German bow to audition and play for a German orchestra? Regards, Paul Jones P.S. I hope to catch up with some of our American counterparts over the next ten weeks,as the band have a North American tour starting next week!!
