BARITONE/OCTAVE FIDDLE and VIOLA PLAYERS - YOU NEED THIS STIFF AND RESPONSIVE BOW to pull the notes from those F-A-T octave strings.
Many players of 5-string violins, such as our Fat Strad Deux 5-String Mezzo Viola will prefer this heavier and stiffer bow to a violin bow.
OK for International Travel!
This bow contains no elephant ivory, fossil ivory, tortoiseshell, lizard skin, controlled abalone shell (e.g. Black Abalone or White Abalone) or products from other controlled species. You will be able to travel across international borders without risk of unintentionally violating U.S. or International laws relating to endangered species.
The Glasser company traces its roots back to 1938, when Leon Glasser began handcrafting wooden bows in his small Bronx, New York workshop. Much has changed since that time: Wood has been replaced by synthetic materials; beginning with fiberglass, then graphite, followed by carbon fiber. Meanwhile, computer assisted design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) has brought new levels of precision to the bow making process.
Glasser Braided Carbon Fiber bows represent the latest in bow technology. These patented bows are the ideal choice for expert musicians. They offer exceptional performance and are highly responsive. Unlike standard composite bows which are hollow, these bows have a solid core to give them an even feel and balance. We use a natural finish to showcase the aesthetic beauty of this bow's interwoven design.
The Glasser nickel mounted Braided Carbon Fiber bows feature deluxe German-made ebony Paulus frogs with the highest quality goldfish abalone pearl slides, large eyes, nickel-silver tip, and are available either in a round or octagonal sticks.
