Hi everyone. When I started playing the DB I was playing almost totally pizz, using arco mainly for learning tonal accuracy on scales. The last few months I find myself 'wanting' to play arco more and more and practicing to the point where my playing actually sounds at least half good lol. I am playing a Jay Haide parnormo with velvet animas. On the lower strings arco is sounding smooth and beautiful. On the upper register of the g string I have to be very careful to keep it together to avoid some pretty horrible sounds, although I improved the sound by giving my adjustable bridge a very slight tweak on the g string end. Even sounding ok, it lacks depth and complexity, unlike the E to D strings. My bass on E to D is powerful, complex and just wonderful, although not articulate. Hope I am painting the right picture. The question I have: Is this just because my technique is not yet up to scratch. Do I have a problem due to the Anima G string itself. Would I be assisted by upgrading my bow, which I am tempted to do anyway. If upgrading the finale, I was thinking of a Coda Infinity. Or maybe a good wooden bow. Or nothing until I can play better lol. I'm simply not sure. Your thoughts would be deeply appreciated.
