Arcus M-Series Carbon Cello Bow

In Stock:
  • M4 round, silver
  • M5 round, silver
  • M8 round, silver

The Arcus Series carbon bows have a clear, tender character. Maintaining connection with the string is effortless; it is easy to achieve a smooth, even tone across the instrument. They sit lightly and comfortably in the hand, allowing for quick string crossings. Changes in articulation and dynamics are controlled and precise. The high register is buttery and sweet, the low register rich, chocolatey, and vivid. There are three versions of this bow — the S, the M, and the T. 

The M bow feels the most malleable of the three — intricately changing the character of the sound is fluid and intuitive. It creates a silky, blendable resonance suited beautifully for orchestral playing. 

Comes in round stick only. 73 grams.

About classifications:

The class-4 bows are a match for very high quality wood bows. The finest wood bows we have ever experienced in competition with an Arcus bow could sometimes equal a class-5, but rarely a class-6 bow. The 7- to 9-category bows pull a sound sweeter and more powerful than anything else ever put to a string.

M-Series are currently available in 4-9 class.

M9 Gold / Select Snakewood Frog Pearl Gold winding The Best, only a few made each year
