Designed with the help of a composite process engineer, and made in an all new state-of-the-art California production facility, these superlative models represent the latest in bow technology. The patent pending braided carbon fiber bows are the ideal choice for expert musicians.

These bows offer exceptional performance, are highly responsive and project a most powerful, clear, rich warm tone.

Unlike standard composite bows, which are hollow, these bows have a solid core to give them a supplementary even feel and balance. The carbon fibers used to make this bow are braided into a continuous pattern. This creates a seamless bow that carries its fiber patterns down its entire length just as the grain of a wood bow is carried down its entire length. They use a natural finish, rather than paint, to showcase the aesthetic beauty of this bow's interwoven design. The bows feature deluxe ebony Paulus frogs made in Germany. The Frogs are nickel, silver and gold mounted and have the highest quality goldfish abalone pearl slide and large eye.

Weight: 70 grams

Impressive quality for the price

I have the snakewood frog option, which I think is very handsome. Although it feels slightly heavy in the hand when initially picking it up, it does not perform in a sluggish manner. For the price, I am impressed with this bow. No two bows draw the same sound out of any instrument, and as such it may or may not be a good match for your instrument. I also appreciate that this bow is made in the USA.

I love my Glasser Braided Carbon Fiber Sterling Silver Viola Bow

I recently purchased this Glasser Braided Carbon Fiber Sterling Silver viola bow. I have a Fiddlershop Carbon Fiber Weave cello bow and was hoping for the same feel when holding and bowing with it. I am very pleased with my purchase. The balance, weight and feel of this bow is fantastic. The hair is of great quality. I get a wonderful sound from my new Fiddlershop Concert Viola with this bow. My experience with Fiddlershop with this purchase did not fail me. It was fantastic.
