The P-bows with their very strong stick and balanced sound are the perfect match for all large violas with a string length around 38 cm (15") and over. They draw a sound that is clear and strong, rich in overtones and projects perfectly. Arcus make them with octagonal and round sticks. The octagonal bows feel very lively and agile and bounce almost automatically. The round one's have a more steady feel and follow the movements of the right hand with utmost precision.
