The P8 Gold plays and sounds like no conventional bow ever could. It allows a more precise articulation and modulation of sounds, it can play louder and more silent, faster and slower. The result is that you can develop you musical ideas and express your feelings in a way that you will never want to miss again.

Just like the gold mounted P8 the silver mounted P8 is an amazing bow that allows you to play like never before. Maybe less prestigious, it will definitely support you enchanting your auditorium with its marvellous sound in the exact same way.

Stick: Octagonal or Round
Weight: c. 60g
Frog: Selected Snakewood

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.
