Arcus Carbon Fiber Bows

Light-Weight Carbon Fiber Bows for Professionals - Lightweight, Powerful, and Lightning-Fast

Arcus bows have to be played to be believed. Extraordinarily lightweight (S series is only 47 grams!!), these bows have an agility and speed simply not possible with traditional bows. They produce a beautiful, brilliant, complex tone. But, the real draw is how they feel in the hand and how they touch the strings. Particularly with the upper level Arcus bows, the performance is clear, clean, smooth, and effortless. They also have the advantage of allowing the player to practice or perform for hours with little hand and arm fatigue (since the hand has much less weight to hold). A must-try bow for all professionals.

Arcus S Series Violin Bows

Arcus S Series Violin Bows are lightweight (47 grams) and stiff. They are quick, agile, brilliant and powerful - ideal for soloists. This is the most popular Arcus line.

Arcus M Series Violin Bows

Arcus M Series Violin Bows are slightly heavier at 51 grams (though still exceptionally lightweight) and more flexible than the S series bows. They offer a warmer tone. We recommend them for orchestral and studio work, and for those who seek warmth, rather than brilliance and projection.

Arcus P Series Violin Bows

Arcus P Series Violin Bows offer the strength (stiffness) of the S line with a slightly heavier (53 grams) stick.

Arcus Müsing Series Violin Bows

Arcus Müsing Series Violin Bows provide outstanding performance at a budget price.

Arcus Quality Designation

Arcus bows are rated for quality and assigned a corresponding number. The higher the number, the better the quality of the stick. Levels 5 and 6 are our best selling bows and really show what Arcus bows have to offer. Levels 7 and 8 have a cleaner, more effortless attack, with exceptional clarity and a rich, organic tone. Level 9 bows are rare, and are not always available. Arcus reserves the level 9 designation for bows that they consider to be perfect.
