The T-bows special characteristics is a sound that combines great warmth and depth with a wide range of overtones and brilliance. The elasticity of the stick is precisely matched to modern steel core strings and while they feel soft when playing lightly, their stiffness kicks in when power and intensity are required. All this makes them the perfect all round bows for every repertoire and setting.
With a mass 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.
