I just attended a fascinating lecture/demonstration by bow-maker Benoît Rolland, a recent recipient of the famed McArthur "Genius" Grant. Mr. Rolland has redesigned the frog completely to provide better playability in the lower half of the bow. Fascinating and exciting. It plays so easily!
Headed to Philly this weekend to play for a private event- back to Boston on Monday for a full week of rehearsals.
