Arcus Cello S Series

Manufacturer's Description

Our S-bows draw a brilliant and most powerful sound, which is perfect for solo playing. They are the bows that most professional players choose. They are a perfect match with all dark sounding, large model instruments, like Goffriller or Montagnana perfectly. The octagonal sticks bounce really easy and play with unmatched agility and liveliness. The round sticks feel more steady and their handling is very direct and perfectly predictable.

Arcus Quality Designation (4-9)

Arcus bows are rated for quality and designated with a number from 4 to 9 (Level 3 Bows Discontinued in 2017). The higher the number, the better the quality of the stick. Levels 5 and 6 are our best selling bows and really show what the Arcus bows have to offer. Levels 7 and 8 have a cleaner attack, with exceptional clarity and a richer, more organic tone. Level 9 bows are rare, and are not always available for trial. Arcus reserves the level 9 designation for bows that they consider to be perfect.
