    Don't give up on the bow -- get a teacher, even if only for a few lessons. Maybe you should try the kind of bow you DON'T have -- you might be more comfortable on a French if you're on German now, or on a German if you're on French now. If you can get it bowing nicely, you'll love the sound.

    That said, I know how you feel! I just got my first DB two weeks ago (been playing on the school's for 6 months.) T'is a great feeling!

    Concord Group in Chicago (actually Elk Grove) is the distribution point for Christopher basses in the United States.
