First class, light carbon bow for professional violists!

Who does not dream of a bow that sounds like a beautiful old pernambuco bow, that plays very easily, jumps perfectly, that is absolutely reliable and robust and still does not cost a fortune?
What was previously impossible, we have created - the new MÜSING bow made by ARCUS!

Traditional viola bows are not strong enough for modern strings and too heavy for a comfortable and fast playing. To solve this problem we have made our viola bows significantly stronger. With a weight of 63 grams they're also much lighter. They safely catch the C-string in fast passages and provide incredible fast string crossings. Unlike many wooden bows their sound is neither nasal nor noisy, but clear, full and open.

C4 - for professional violists: The C4 is a great bow that is comparable in sound to two to three times as expensive wooden bow. Easy response, the sound is colorful and clear and very easy to control. The carbon bow is ideal for playing in the orchestra! The high resilience (elasticity) of the bows fits perfectly with modern strings and allows for easier and natural playing.

Great sound - sturdy and reliable
MÜSING bows made by ARCUS are designed and manufactured in Würzburg / Germany with the utmost care. The bow sticks are formed under high pressure from seamless braided carbon fiber and epoxy resin. Classification C2 - C5 is based on the resonance of the bow stick. The bow sticks are hollow and thin-walled, have a very uniform structure and a particularly low resin content. As a result, they are not only lighter and stiffer, but can swing better and high-frequency overtones can unfold freely. This makes the MUESING bow extremely resistant to breakage. They never warp and never soften.
The screw is mounted in two metal bushings, so that the bow can be easily tensioned and the bore is not rubbed. The sticks are also completely insensitive to high humidity or climatic fluctuations.
With this bow, you can easily travel around the world, as it contains no components that are under protection of species.
