Violabows

Special models and earlier series

~ S-Series ~

The S-bows offer the same elasticity as the P-bows. Due to their lower weight they produce a brighter sound. This makes them especially suitable to large instruments with a rather dark sound.
Weight: ca. 55-57 g. Round and octagonal sticks

~ A-Series ~

The A-bows offer the same lightness as the S-bows, but they are more flexible. Their sound is particularly open and clear, with a very light response. They are a great match for smaller and lighter build violas with a string length of less than 27 cm.
Weight: ca. 54-56 g. Round sticks

The first series of Arcus-bows was made in three generations. In 1999 we painted the stick black and they had no engraving. The ARCUS brand was first engraved in 2002.
Weight: ca. 50 to 55 g. Round and octagonal sticks

From 2003 on the stick we no longer painted. They received engravings of their model name. To further improve the balance we changed all frogs to the new, slated style which we had introduced with the Sinfonia and Cadenza bows.
From 2004 to 2007 the third generation of this series was made. Their stick was a bit slimmer and they got a deeper camber. Also the head was new, larger and wider with a more modern shape. A little weight was added to shift the sound spectrum to the warmer side.
Weight: ca. 55 to 60 g. Round and octagonal sticks

~ Veloce ~

In 2004 we developed the Veloce. It was a little heavier and more flexible which suits smaller violas nicely as they draw a darker sound. What we learned with this type and the Allegro lead us to the development of the M-series bows in 2008.
Weight: ca. 62 g. Round sticks

  • Model Veloce
  • Outfit Nickel
  • Price (2007) 650 €

~ Allegro ~

The Allegro was made in 2006 and 2007. It is the direct precursor to the M-series bows and matches smaller violas with a brighter sound.
Weight: ca. 60-62 g. Round sticks

  • Model Allegro
  • Outfit Silver 935
  • Price (2007) 1.150 €
