"Incidentally, although I am a bassoonist, I ran across an article regarding bows by Andrew Victor.
The comments regarding the Arcus bows by Mr. Victor so intrigued me that I convinced my wife to try an Arcus Concerto violin (she is a violin/viola player and teacher, and was using a fine Tubbs). She loves the Arcus bow! So much so, we have also bought (or will have in the next 2 weeks--our son's viola bow is currently on order) Arcus Concerto bows for all of our 4 children (our eldest daughter is a viola major/Masters program at Juilliard).
Although there are other bows in their cases, the Arcus bow is the bow that is being used ALL the time by ALL of them!"
