I took the CF cello bow that came as part of my outfit, in immediate dislike. Why? 1. I am biased against CF. I admit it! 2. It's noticeably unattractive. Although not as bad as the old Glasser bows. 3. I don't know how much it is worth, independently, but given it's branded with the name of the outfit and there's no information available on it...it is certainly not expensive. And yeah...of course it's entirely adequate for me to squeak around with. I did try it on my violin, just for fun...and was actually surprised at how well it sounded in that scenario...so I assume it can't be a complete dud. I can certainly tell/hear/feel the difference a violin/viola bow makes. Are cello bows the same, or are they also less fussy? How much of a difference would a better bow make? Or, how well would one need to play until one would even notice bow quality?
