Hey so i am an obsessed zeppelin fan and as you all probably know that jimmy page uses a violin bow to play a solo in the song dazed and confused, so i am looking for a violin bow that is not too expensive to use on my les paul to re-create that solo. any suggestions?

You do know that if you get that bow, and use it like JP, you're going to have to restring/thread it a LOT right? If doing Page-esque stuff I'd get a theremin. They're expensive, but pretty cool.

Here's what I'm talking about if you haven't seen it already.

Na, youre doing it all wrong. Use the entire violin! Nigel Tufnel style.

You should try something totally off the wall, like using an old beat up bow. Lots of people have done cool things with just a plain bow, it would be cool to see some newer usage.

You could always use your own back hair! O.o

Just go on ebay or a charity shop :)

Page actually uses a cello bow...im not sure what the difference is exactly but yeh. Any bow will do for most of the solo but i find the slapping part is easily if u turn the bow around so that u strike the strings with the wooden part. Also when u buy the bow don't forget to buy rosin. You rub the rosin onto the bow so that it is able to create friction with the strings :)
