The P8 lends every instrument a full, rich and dark sound that still doesnt lack brilliance. It is as powerful as it is sensitive. Its gold outfit is a tale of supreme quality that will still resonate with later generations of players that may have the pleasure using it some day.

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.
