Bow size recommendations?

Post by Lars » Sun Feb 05, 2012 7:42 am

I had a customer come over with his own bow and played one of our Sarangis, it was fantastic and made of carbon fiber with nylon strings in the West.
Having been asked many times for bows I've thought of carrying them, can I get suggestions from experienced players as to what size to carry? Mainly for Sarangi, Dilruba and Esraj. I'm thinking a cello bow but I'm just a sitar player and not sure, can have them made to spec within reason.....Any suggestions appreciated.....

Probably this might help.. This is just for the basic dimensions of sarangi bow stick. Dilruba/esraj bows are light weight.

Both ends can be having some small decorating pieces.

Thanks Dr.K,
Can't get the picture, it's requiring me to join, etc. If you get a chance maybe you could email it?
