Arcus Professional level bows made in Switzerland. Some of these models have matched the performance characteristics of the finest wood bows. Other models have surpassed what wood can do. Testimonials from customers that have purchased Arcus bows is overwhelmingly positive. In the words of one Cellist that owns an Arcus bow, "I feel like I'm cheating when I play this bow". The materials used don't just allow Arcus to create bows with a wonderful sound and perfect playing properties. They can also adjust the resiliency, the weight and the balance with much more freedom and precision than with conventional materials. The complex texture of the carbon fibres still gives each bow its individual character and tonal beauty.
