Handmade by Helisson himself, from the highest quality Pernambuco - straight from the source! This 2-star bow is an upgrade from the 1-star Pernambuco Bow as it is crafted from a more refined selection of wood.
These bows produce a wonderfully clean and clear sound with very little bow noise, they respond quickly and lively to even the most advanced off the string strokes.
Master bow maker Helisson designs and makes fine professional bows in his workshop located in Espírito Santo, Brazil. Living and working there allows him to select the best available Pernambuco Wood for his bows since Brazil is the only source of Pernambuco wood. Over 13 years of experience making bows. Worked 10 years for Water Violet Bows.
Bow Length: 29.5 inches
Bow Weight: 61-62 grams
"My work is inspired by famous bow-makers such as Sartory, Peccatte, Lamy, and many Belgium bow-making schools." - Helisson Cyrillo
When it comes to experiencing the entire universe of musical possibility, there is nothing more elegant or lovely than my Cyrillo 2-star bow. With absolutely perfect balance and amazing tonal resonance, the 2-star has revealed the best my grand pappy’s old fiddle can offer. I have been playing for over thirty years. When my Fiddleman carbon fiber hybrid bow (which is also a very good bow) needed new hair, I decided I had finally earned the right to experience the feel and tone of a fine pernambuco. I tried many bows both pernambuco and carbon fiber. Each had different good qualities but none as good overall as my carbon hybrid. I was ready to let it go. After all, my old bow had served me well for years. Then Clare suggested I try a Cyrillo, and it was revelation. The balance of the bow immediately improved my technique, especially with challenging fast tunes that require quick and intricate bowing strokes. And the tone is divine. Quite honestly, I felt like I had acquired an upgraded fiddle along with the bow. Many thanks to Clare and Fiddle Shop for expanding my horizons with this once in a lifetime magnificently crafted bow!
