This is the the most affordable violin bow that Helisson Cyrillo makes. Handmade by Helisson himself from high quality Pernambuco - straight from the source!
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. Cyrillo worked for 10 years for Water Violet Bows, anand now has over 13 years experience making bows under his own name.
"My work is inspired by famous bow-makers such as Sartory, Peccatte, Lamy, and many Belgium bow-making schools." - Helisson Cyrillo

The bow was a little too "bouncy" so I returned it. I now have the Holstein 3 star bow that I exchanged for the Cyrillo bow and I am satisfied with it. I appreciate that your company was easy to deal with.

The buying experience was very satisfactory as I was assisted by a friendly and very knowledgeable young woman. The bow has a very nice feel and sound, but I am a fiddle newbie with very limited experience with other bows.
