Arcus M Series Cello Bows

Manufacturer's Description

If you are looking for a bow that enhances the warmth in the sound of your instrument, an Arcus M is most probably the right bow. It works really well with all smaller celli that are often a bit brighter in sound. The M-bows draw a very full, warm and rich sound which is also clear and provides good brilliance. They are good for the entire repertoire and provide great comfort, so that even after long hours of playing the bow arm still feels light and relaxed.

Travel with Your Arcus Bow

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

Secure Tone + Nimble Technique!

I tried the M5, M6 & S6. After owning the S5 for some time, I finally got a sound post adjustment and strings that tamed my new cello's brightness. The M provides a more core sound to come through, while the S seems to highlight the overtones, I wouldn't say brightly but just more expansive sounds that tend to ride on top of the creamy center that I was looking forward to improving on my instrument. It's amazing to find these varying virtues in the few grams of difference between the M- and S-series, especially given that both allow one's technique to really fly. Thanks, Fisher Violins, for this opportunity! I could have spent many more months--or yrs--trying to 'wait' for my cello to 'break in.' But the combination of sound post, bow and strings evaluation really came through.

Arcus M6 Cello bow review

I got three Arcus cello bows on trial, M5, M6 and M7. Arcus cello bows are slightly longer and at 72 grams, the M Series are lighter than a Penambuco wood bow. I prefer the light weight for chamber music but it also has lots of power in reserve for orchestra playing. The M6 draws a smooth and powerful sound, which is just right on my bright sounding cello. It is subtle in pianissimos and pleasantly easy in fortissimos. It does take some time to get used to the different feel than a good Pernambuco bow. If you can afford but don't want to dish out over $10k for an antique French bow, an M6 is well worth the price.
