comment Why are violin bows longer than viola bows, than cello bows, than double-bass bows ?
The differences? the feel of the bow in the hand, the balance - it's all personal stuff. What's not so personal is that the tone produced by each bow is different - the longer bow is more of a solo / chamber bow - good tone, very easy to use. the shorter one (which was more expensive) seems to give more volume, but a slightly edgier tone, and I generally only use it for more modern orchestral stuff.

It ain't necessarily so... I have two bass bows, the shorter of which is about the same length as my cello bow...
