THE GLASSER OCTAGONAL SHAFT BRAIDED CARBON FIBER BOW with round stick (cello bow currently only available with round stick)
5-STRING OCTAVE VIOLA (Chin Cello) PLAYERS - YOU NEED THIS STIFF AND RESPONSIVE BOW to pull the notes from those F-A-T octave viola strings. The same goes for violoncello da Spalla (shoulder cello) players.
This is not a joke! With this bow your octave viola (especially a 5-string) or violoncello will sound better immediately. You may need 5 or 10 minutes to get used to using less muscle to move those strings.
