    Hey, I finally got my new violin. It was made by Santaro Lucci. It has a beautifully flamed back. I'll try to find a digital camera in the junk piled in my room and put a few shots of it up. It is the most beautiful violin I've ever seen!

    OK. I can't find my digital camera, so I'm going to get one of those digital disposeable Kodaks...

    While I'm waiting to upload those amazing pictures of my new baby here, I have a question. My former teacher is looking for buyers of her bows, and she told me of a few great ones she'll let me have for *only* 2,000 dollars per bow. I have about 50 bucks left from getting the new violin, so do you think I should tell her to hold on to one of them for about a year and buy it then, or should I go to a professional bow maker for one. I'll try to get the names of them again...

    Have u tried her bow? Is it superb?
    If u really like it, maybe u can ask her to cut down the $ a little... since yr her student...:P
    Is it necessary to use such a good bow? Of caz, the difference is huge. I don't know. :unsure: But I never believe in using costly bows to produce good sound.. :unsure:
    What u guys think?

    Thumbs down

    I think a bow can make a great difference, but $2000 bows are out of my league! I have a $25 bow and one appraised at $170. I'm even thinking about buying one for about $300, but that doesn't come anywhere near $2000!

    If I were to spend that kind of $$ on a bow, I know I'd try out a lot of bows first!

    She said &#036;2000 is a major cutdown on the price. I have heard of the maker before, and I believe he is one of the best. I just can&#39;t remember his name. I&#39;ll ask her tomorrow.

    ...I&#39;m not near good enough to need a really good bow...but my viola bow was &#036;300...and I just love it...:wub:

    ...my two ~ &#036;250 violin bows are quite nice too...and even my less expensive (but good quality) brazilwood bow is quite playable...

    ...but now I&#39;m spoiled...I can&#39;t go back to the &#036;40 model I was using before...

    Maybe if I do buy it, I won&#39;t be able to use anything less than &#036;2000. :P

    Hey&#33; Here it is:

    [attachmentid=24][attachmentid=25][attachmentid=26]

    The last picture is very poor. In real life it is darker than that. Also, the second is pretty fuzzy, but the first is good.
