This is my first post :-) I have been playing cello for about 2 years now & am upgrading my Brazilwood bow ( probably will be more of a "Placebo" effect at this point as I am in my cello infancy ), but I have a question ...... I am trying-out 2Codabows: A 2007 Classic ( brand new ) & a Diamond GX. They both seem like great bows, but I can't really decide which is better for me, now, & years down the road when, hopefully, I will be playing somewhat well !!!? The catch is this: I can get the "Classic" for only $650.00 and the "Diamond GX" for $875.00. The cost difference doesn't matter to me, it's just that the Classic was originally $1100.00. Is it a better bow or is the newly designed Diamond GX better ? I have read countless ratings and discussions, but there is no firm consensus. Some people think the Gx is better while some are firm on the Classic. Does anyone have input to provide to help me choose a bow ?
