The development of the latest generation of our bass bows was a truly fascinating experience. It now looks like we have disentangled the Gordian knot and found the ideal sound and playing characteristics without the need to make any compromises. The new Arcus bass bows are incredibly open and free sounding and produce almost no noise, which renders the sound much more singing and improves projection dramatically.
The elasticity of the sticks match the elasticity of modern bass strings precisely so bouncing bows are very natural and easy to play. The fast response provides a new level of articulation and precision.

A clear, singing sound, rich and warm with plenty of brilliance, crisp articulation, fast response - the Arcus bass bows improve the sound of every bass by quite a margin. The lower weight in combination with the incredibly strong stick allow the fastest and strongest play ever while also providing unmatched ease and comfort.
