The T-models are the most universal bows made by Arcus. They cover a huge spectrum of sound colors and playing styles. Violinists can expect great warmth and brilliance at the same time, which make them suitable for a majority of instruments. And while they significantly improve the sound of many under-performing instruments, their ideal range of overtones allow players to determine the perfect setup and best strings for their instrument more easily than with any other bow.

The weight of each bow is around 51 grams and sticks are only available in the round shape, (as opposed the the P, S, and M series which are also available in octagonal). Their balance is normal, but the mass is distributed towards both ends, giving the bow much more stability than you would expect in such a lightweight bow

In contrast with the solid sticks of wooden bows, the hollow, round shapes of Arcus sticks give them very attractive characteristics.  The round sticks have a very simple cross section, which gives them an even and steady feel. 

Bow length: 29.5 inches
Weight: 51-53 grams

Because of the fantastic durability of their bows, Arcus offers a 30 warranty on the bow sticks. For the tip plate, the frog and the button they offer a 2 year warranty.

The hair, thumb leather, the winding, the screw and nut are excluded from warranty as they are subject to normal wear and tear. Any warranty claim must be initiated through Fiddlershop. Should that not be possible, please get in touch with the Arcus distributor in your country. Otherwise please contact 
Arcus directly to inform them of the damage and its circumstances. Arcus will then inform you about further procedures.

The warranty applies only under normal playing conditions. Should a bow be damaged under circumstances that are outside warranty limits, please get in touch with us anyway. We will try to offer you a repair or replacement at especially favorable conditions.

Any warranty expires when substantial changes are made to the bow, especially any attempt to change the curve of the stick, which is absolutely impossible. Any damage that is caused during unqualified work on rehairing the bow is also excluded. Please contact your Arcus-dealer, the distributor or Fiddlershop in any such case to find the best possible solution.

(All Arcus bows made in Austria before 2009, named Sonata, Sinfonia, Concerto, Cadenza, Allegro, Veloce or Vega, are covered by a 10 year warranty on the stick only.)

Wood bows are unacceptable - A comparison of the S7, M7, and P7

Over the past month I had the pleasure of trying the following bows: S5, S6, S6 (Octagonal), S7, M7, and P7. The differences between the S5, S6es, and S7 are qualitative so it is really easy to gravitate towards the S7. The S7 is simply better and thus plays and sounds like it. It is hard NOT to prefer it over the others. The differences between the P7, M7, and S7 are much more subtle and far more subjective. They are all excellent bows but have their own forte. It really depends on the material you are playing and what you like. The P7 feels powerful and is much easier to pull gritty, aggressive sounding notes where the S7 requires more work. (more volume and projection with less work) The S7 is easier to play with a very light touch, is super responsive, and definitely brighter. The P7 sounds rich and velvety in the lower registers. The M7 sits somewhere in between, feels exceptionally stable, and sounds very clear. It's easier to get some "bite" with M7 versus the S7 but the softer stick feels less lively. The P7 and M7 both pull fuller, fatter notes with spicatto than the S7. Two things were certain; I couldn't go back to my wood bow (I have been ruined!) and I couldn't buy all three. I decided to keep the P7. The ability to pull hard and fast doublestops without bottoming out the stick was the thing that tipped the scales in favor of the P7 for me. I mean you can REALLY tear into it and the P7 says, "Is that all you got? Gimme more!!"
