Arcus T-Series Carbon Bow - CELLO

In Stock:
  • T6 round, silver
  • T8 round, silver
  • T8 round, GOLD

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 — the S, the M, and the T.

The T bow combines the shimmer of the S with the fluidity of the M. This bow is ideal for a cellist in need of a versatile bow for a wide range of performances. It is guaranteed to perform well in any setting.

With a weight of about 71 grams, these bows are vastly more maneuverable than any “normal” cello bow. Their much stronger sticks make it possible to use the full potential of all modern strings with either steel or synthetic cores. 

Too many cellists sooner or later experience discomfort or even pain in their right thumb, wrist or elbow. The strong forces and vibrations of a cello bow can lead to many, different complications. By changing to an Arcus bow, the lower mass and the “missing” low frequency vibrations result in a total relief and relaxation of the bow arm. This doesn’t only feel good for the musician, but is also visible and audible to a knowledgeable auditorium. The instant response and the beautiful and strong sound affords flexible and easy playing with plenty of freedom in the interpretation.

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.

The T-Series is available in only class 4 and above...finer than the finest wood bows available. Round stick only.

T9 Gold 585 / Selected Snakewood Frog Gold Ring Gold Rich, clear and effortless. Ideal bow for soloists.
T8 Gold or Silver / Selected Snakewood Frog Pearl Gold/black Instant response and clarity. Power, projection, rich and brilliant.
T7 Sterling Silver / Beautiful Snakewood Silver Ring Silver Powerful, yet sweet and clear sound.
T6 Sterling Silver / Beautiful Snakewood Frog Silver Ring Silver/black Matches the finest old wood bows
T5 Sterling Silver / More figured Snakewood Frog Pearl Silver Warm, brilliant, and agile.
T4 Stainless Steel / Snakewood Frog 70g Pearl Stainless Steel Clear sound, precise bounce.
