Arcus Bows
Arcus bows are light-weight, meticulously crafted, and lightning-fast. Built for professionals, Arcus bows offer a speed and quality of response that is simply not possible with traditional pernambuco bows.

Arcus M5
The M5 has a sterling silver winding and ferrule, and offers a smoother response and better balance than the A4. The M5 is darker in tone than either the A5 or the S5, and is an excellent choice for bright instruments or players who prefer a full, warm tone.

Manufacturer's Description:
Of all Arcus bows, the ~M5~ is the most similar to the fine old French and German master made bows. It is very easy to play and its full, rich and warm sound unfolds without any significant effort. Of course, it is faster and stronger and the sound is not nasal at all. Especially brighter sounding violins win in depth and warmth when paired with an M-series bow.

Travel Internationally with Your Arcus Bow

Arcus bows contain no ivory, tortoiseshell, lizard skin, or other controlled species. You may travel internationally with your Arcus bow with no worries or hassles.

Musicians wishing to travel internationally with bows containing ivory must now obtain a CITES Passport before travel. The ivory must have been legally harvested prior to Feb. 26, 1976, and the bow must have been purchased prior to Feb. 25, 2014. Learn more about traveling with your instrument and bow.
