Arcus M Series Violin Bows

Manufacturer's Description

The special feature of the M-series violin bows is their perfect balance both in their sound character and their play and feel. The shape of their sticks is round and they are a little more flexible than the S- and P-bows. They are a little lighter than the P-bows though they offer the same stability due to a weigt distribution towards the extremes. They make it easy to play any repertoire and fit almost every instrument perfectly, as they pull an especially open sound with a great range of colours.

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.

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.
