S8 Violin Bow
Product Code: VNB-ARC-S80
Many concertmasters and soloists have made an S8 their primary bow. It not only draws the most colourful sound from every instrument, but allows to cut through in even the most demanding circumstances. It is especially suitable if you are looking for a bow that brings out more brilliance and power from your instrument.
|Stick:||Octagonal or Round|
The S-bows are Arcus' lightest and strongest violin bows. Their sound is big, brilliant, powerful and round, but more bright than warm. They are the perfect choice for most soloists and also great for jazz, rock and folk music. The S-bows are a great match for all dark sounding instruments.
They are available with round sticks that play more steady and feel very steady and octagonal sticks that play rather agile and lively. For many years the S-series bows are our bestseller and you can find them in all the great orchestras around the world.
Arcus Violin Bows
A sound that is brilliant, open and clear, rich and full, with a uniquely wide range of overtones, free of noise. Fantastic bounce and agility combined with perfect stability and ease of play. Our violin bows fullfil everything you might be looking for to achieve the most beautiful performance.
Arcus Viola Bows
The power of a cello bow combined with the lightness of a violin bow: Our viola bows free violists from the restrictions of traditional bows. They open up the full potential in the sound of every viola, pulling the most powerfull, clear and rich sound while offering the fastest response and absolutely crisp articulation.
Arcus Cello Bows
The Arcus cello bows are the first bows that allow you to use this potential completely. Their sticks are both much stronger than wooden sticks and lighter. This provides ultimate agility and elegance, an effortless playing, instant response on all strings and significantly improved playing comfort.
Arcus Bass Bows
The sound they pull is full, rich, open, clear and dramatically reduced in noise. The sound of the bass becomes much more singing, almost like going from a rhythmic to a melodic instrument.
The Anniversary Edition
These bows are the essence of more than 20 years of research and development, but above all they incorporate the ideal combination of all the wishes of thousands of musicians from all over the world. And so they offer perfectly balanced, yet extremely dynamic playing characteristics in connection with a dreamlike sound that is as full and warm as brilliant and rich in overtones. For their outfit we have combined gold and silver to given them a unique appearance and reflect the 20 years of love and dedication to our craft.
