Yes, some people would say that the bow is even more important than the violin. You may find the same problems in local stores that I mentioned earlier - inflated prices and lack of knowledge. Your daughter really needs to play the actual bow you might buy - even with carbon fiber there may be variation. Here's a discussion of carbon fiber bows that seems pretty good to me: consordini.com/best-carbon-fib...lin-bows/
Thank you for the link! I’ll read up on it.
I would check with Shar Music. You can call them and discuss your situation. They have a very large inventory and will send bows on a trial basis. I once had the opportunity to buy a discontinued model Eastman (Eastman 805 model). I wish I hadn't sold it. I now have some instruments that cost twice as much and they don't sound as good as the Eastman.
