I've recently seen a bow with a very interesting lapping. There was no leather thumb grip (french style?), and the lapping looked like it was made out of a silver lapped "a" string with a silk thread running thoughout. I would have never noticed if it hadn't started coming off at the end. Has anyone else seen this type of lapping? It seemed fairly innovative and i may try to replicate it.
my other question is if I change the weight at the frog (with the lapping) I change the balance of the bow so somewhere along the line I should look at the camber of the bow does any body have an idea how the two influence each other ( more weight more camber ? more weight different camber ?) should I make the camber greater at the frog if I add weight`? thank you for your ideas tartarane
