Nemo Posted March 30, 2005 Report Share Posted March 30, 2005 I've run across an old 62g Horst Schicker that is in so so condition. The bow still has a great shape but looks pretty used. It has to be at least 20-30 yrs old guessing. It does handle well and play well. What advantage does an old pernambuco bow offer over a new bow in wood quality? Is it true a good new pernambuco bow is hard to find at $1000 bucks? I have noticed that the newer bows seem to have more wood flaws and are thicker the older bows. All the new ones I've tried seem to be too stiff - bright - cracky or otherwise too flimsy - dark - dead. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
