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.

Every year we make only a few M9 bows, as only a small percentage of new sticks come out with perfect resonance quality. The result is an incredible sound, instant response and a dreamlike easy playing. It catches the C-string as easy as it makes the A-string shine like the sun.

The M8 is a wonderful companion to valuable instruments and demanding players. You will love its instant response and warm yet incredibly powerful sound. It is fitted in solid gold, representing our determination to absolute perfection.

With its sterling silver outfit the M8 looks like a true classic. It offers the same revolutionary qualities as its gold mounted sibling at a very reasonable price.

The range of overtones of the M7 bow, its clear, open and full sound can’t be found in wooden bows. The crisp articulation and the fascinating overtone spectrum makes it a joy to find new ways to express your music. It is really easy to play a beautiful pianissimo, but you can also play more powerfully than with any traditional bow.
