Any thoughts on playing dilruba with a gaz vs a violin or cello bow? The tone is certainly different! I am finding it easier as a beginner to get a clear, non-scratchy sound when playing with the bow...

If I can avoid the scratchy sound, the gaz definitely produces a better tone and more volume.

Every gas, bow, etc. will each have its own unique tone. Of course take advantage of this- but in terms of developing skill, leaning to get good tone from a difficult bow will advance bowing skill enormously.

I've tried both violin and cello bow (for Dilruba), currently I'm experimenting with the double bass bow (German style).
This is something which Pt Dhruba Ghosh has also tried on the Sarangi, see his interview in Regula Qureshi's book Master Musicians of India: Hereditary Sarangi Players Speak.
