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, 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 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.
