    Hey. I have been looking for a French bow to buy. I have just bought a bass a few days ago so im not looking for something crazy expensive. Just a decent bow. I also play cello so French is what I'm used to, I will consider German bows as well. Wood bow would be nice, real horse hair is a must.

    Your PM box is full.

    If you're still looking, I have a wood bow that I bought from my college teacher. I played it all through school, but have since upgraded to a $2k+ bow. Lightweight, good sound, recently rehaired with black hair. The frog is cheap-looking. I paid $100, plus the rehair. I'd sell it for $75 shipped, and incllude a Coda bow bag. I can weigh/measure/photograph it if you're interested.
