Comment: For bass players who prefer an octagon pernambuco stick, AB266G is the same quality level as this round shaped bass bow. If you have no preference for round or octagon shape, please consider a bow trial of each one. The round sticks tend to be have a bit more mass so they produce a dark, rich tone, but still have easy control in the hand. The octagon sticks are noticeably slimmer, produce a clear ringing orchestral tone, and tend to be a bit more agile in the spiccato. Compare to AB266G, or AB605G, or AB450G. Of course, W. Seifert Bass Bows are available for In-Home, In-Studio Bow Trial. Please call 1-800-246-2277.
