For more powerful sounding, brighter violins, Arcus has developed the P-series bows. An especially resilient stick allows the playing of double stops in fortissimo without the stick touching down on the strings. To draw a warmer, deeper sound, some weight has been added, but the P series are still significantly lighter than traditional bows, keeping their advantage in agility and speed. The P-bows with octagonal sticks are especially lively and bounce almost automatically while the round version are especially steady and follow the hand precisely.
