The use of endpins and steel strings have changed the playing and sound of the cello in quite a dramatic way, giving it added brilliance and power. The Arcus cello bows are the first bows that allow you to use this potential completely. Their sticks are both much stronger and lighter than wooden sticks. This provides ultimate agility and elegance, effortless playing, instant response on all strings, and significantly improved playing comfort. They pull a clean and open sound that can be very soft and extremely powerful. The sound in the upper registers is brilliant and shows a beautiful range of overtones.
