Comment: This Silver Quality Bass Bow is a noticeable upgrade from AB600 and features a better quality stick that draws well, sounds louder, and is more flexible for added advantage in more advanced techniques. A note about the two kinds of windings these bows might have. The deciding factor is weight. When Durrschmidt has an AB605 quality stick that needs little additional weight to correct balance, he uses the whale bone lapping (Fischbein). If the stick needs more weight to correctly balance the stick, he uses silver wire. Available for In-Home, In-Studio Bow Trial. Call 800-246-2277.
