The Player's Bow - Handcrafted in America
Inspired by centuries of tradition and decades of fine bow making experience, the MARQUISE GS is the standard-bearer of master bows. Designed by the leaders of advanced bowmaking, the GS delivers exquisite handling and expressive sound once reserved only for the finest master bows. Both advanced and organic fibers expertly blended bestow natural response, sensitivity, and beauty.
Richness and Range - "Organic-Fiber Acoustic Core"
High-pressure infused Acoustic Core contains a first-ever blend of natural (plant) fibers and Kevlar® that delivers organic timbre, rich overtones, and a full range of expression. Decades of experience has taught us that creating superior, sophisticated sound requires more than just carbon fiber. The clear favorite of master bow players, this organic-fiber blend must be experienced to believe.
Connection and Response - "In-Touch™ Technology"
Breakthrough In-Touch™ Technology showcases unidirectional carbon fibers running without interruption from button to tip. Advanced bi-lateral positioning of high-sensitivity fibers connects the player precisely to the tip and transmits their energy directly to the music. This naturally elegant architecture enhances lateral stability, offers superior tracking, and gives exceptional response. More supple than its DIAMOND cousins, the MARQUISE GS appeals most to players seeking a bow experience in the finest French tradition.
Customs-Approved GlobalBow® Design
GlobalBow® designation ensures that the MARQUISE GS contains no endangered, monitored, or regulated species (wildlife or fauna) and can pass worry-free through international Customs. Materials Declaration Certificate available - please contact Codabow directly. Perfect for any travelling player; never leave home without it.
Beauty and Stewardship - Sterling-Mounted XEBONY® Frog
XEBONY® is a beautiful solution to the world's endangered supply of instrument-grade ebony. Comprised of organic fibers and resin, XEBONY® boasts a rich luster and natural grain that impresses players and bow makers alike. Stronger and more durable than natural ebony, XEBONY® offers improved performance while conserving our endangered resources.

Identity - Individual Identification Number

When registered by the original owner with our workshop, this identification number will activate the lifetime warranty, and entitle the original owner to a full complement of priority workshop services, including rehairing, model upgrades, and customization.
"The Marquise is indeed the marriage of decades of master bow making experience with our industry's most advanced technology"
-Jeff Van Fossen, founder of CodaBow International
I trialed the Codabow Marquise and the JonPaul Carrera. They are about the same price and both weigh 80g. However, like the other Codabows I have tried, due to the balance, it feels heavier than the JonPaul. The JonPaul also had a better tone than the Marquise, although the Marquise does sound better than other Codabows I have tried. Honestly, since this is the 3rd Codabow I have tried, I don't see why they are so popular, vs the JonPaul (and maybe the Arcus, which I have never tried). But, I know there are plenty of Codabow fans, and if you are, this was the best one I have tried.
