The S5 combines great ideal characteristics with a big and beautiful sound in a price range where you mostly find bows with some serious shortcomings. Their brilliant sound, agility and power makes them not only suitable for classical players with rather warm sounding instruments but also a favourite among jazz and folk players.

Mounting: 935 Silver
Stick: Octagonal or Round
Weight: c. 49g
Frog: Beautiful Snakewood

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.
