Arcus bows are, beyond a doubt, the best carbon-graphite bows available. The higher-end Arcus bows are also the best bows; period! (i.e. better than ANY Pernambuco bow)

From world renowned soloists to advancing students, Arcus bows are in the hands of thousands of musicians around the world. Musicians, many of whom would never again wish to be without their Arcus bow.

Why? Because it makes playing so much more enjoyable. For many players discovering the possibilities of these unique bows turned out to be quite an adventure. Initially they struggled to overcome long held prejudices, but almost all of them have retired their wooden bows for good.

Musicians and instruments are quite individual. To be able to offer the ideal bow for every player, Arcus developed a wide range of bows with significant differences in their handling and in their sound.

There is a lot to know before deciding on an Arcus bow to purchase. You probably want a lot of information before paying from about $1,100 to $10,000 for a bow. See the links below.

Arcus M-Series Carbon-Graphite Bows ($1,159 to $8,000)

The special feature of the M-series violin bows is their perfect balance both in their sound character and their play and feel. The shape of their sticks is round and they are a little more flexible than the S-Series and P-Series bows. They are a little lighter than the P-bows though they offer the same stability due to a weight distribution towards the tip and frog. They make it easy to play any repertoire and fit almost every instrument perfectly, as they pull an especially open sound with a great range of color.

In general, the M-Series bows sound is especially warm and full, making them a perfect match for all violins with a bright sound.

Travel Internationally with Your Arcus Bow

The ever-increasing risk of having bows confiscated by Customs or other government agents overseeing import-export of products made from endangered species is becoming a big deal for musicians who travel across national borders (and even State borders within the U.S. and elsewhere). For example, if the tip of your bow is made from elephant ivory or, now, even so-called "fossil ivory" (e.g. mammoth tusk), kiss that bow goodbye if you cross any international border. Not a joke or exaggeration!

Arcus bows contain no ivory, tortoiseshell, lizard skin, or other controlled (i.e. endangered, regulated or monitored) species. You may travel internationally with your Arcus bow with no worries or hassles at Customs in any country.
