|Arcus S5: Sterling Silver Mountings, Pearl Eye, Silver Lapping|
Arcus S-Series bows - Ideal for solos. Radical virtuosity, perfect projection and incredible power. Their brilliant spectrum suits all well balanced instruments
and makes darker sounding instruments sing like never before.

With a mass of only about 68 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

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.

Our basic class-3 bows will already outperform pretty much
every other composite bow. The class-4 bows are a match for
very high quality wood bows. The finest wood bows we have ever

bows pull a sound sweeter and more powerful than anything else
ever put to a string.
The S-Series is available in only class 5 and above, finer than the finest wood bows available.
