The M-bows are a perfect fit for all small violas. They draw a warm, full sound which is open and clear, not the least nasal but rich and sonorous with great projection. The elasticity of their sticks is designed to match the shorter, softer strings of smaller instruments. Their weight is similar to traditional violin bows, which provides great playability and comfort, while bearing sufficient mass for bowings that require some impulse.

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.
