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.
Most soloists that play an Arcus bow have chosen an S-bow. Their sheer power and their clear, brilliant and full sound projects like no other bow in a large concert hall. Their low weight and high elasticity provide unparalleled agility and speed. They are our best recommendation for all large scale instruments with a dark sound.from $1,180.00
The M-bows draw a particularly warm and round tone and are a little heavier and more flexible than our other cello bows, which makes them perfect all around bows for smaller and brighter sounding instruments. Their handling is perfectly balanced and particularly easy, which is appreciated by orchestra players just as much as by students and amateurs.from $1,180.00
