Arcus Carbon Fiber Bows
Bernstein Violins

Scroll down for all of the Arcus bow listings.

Arcus bows are not a better version of your old bow, nor can they be compared with any other bow, old or new, wood or synthetic.  They are their own paradigm and you must evaluate them on their own merits. 

A trial can be arranged by calling Reed at 303-499-6165.  Prices on this site are competitive, but If you find an Arcus bow for less money, please let him know!  For more information on Arcus bows please see the Arcus Overview on this site.

The S-, M-, and P- Series bows sold elsewhere are not the Original Arcus line, and we do not carry them. In our opinion they are a sub-standard product, now being manufactured in a completely different facility from the original plant in Austria. The Original Arcus bows are still available from the distibutor of the Original Arcus line, and they are all listed below.

Original Arcus Bows are the only Arcus bows we sell, which include the Gold Cadenza, Silver Cadenza, Concerto, Sinfonia, Vega, Allegro, and Sonata. These are the superior carbon fiber bows, manufactured in Austria, that made the line famous, and we are pleased to be able to provide you with these meticulously hand-crafted carbon fiber bows.

 Arcus alternative for violin for $795: I now have in stock a high quality, custom designed, woven carbon fiber bow from another manufacturer that has many of the playing characteristics of the Arcus bow, including light weight manuverablity, and a rich core sound. It is less extreme in the weight reduction, and much less expensive. Call Reed for more information. 303-499-6165.

Ricardo Cyncynates, Assistant Concertmaster of the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington DC has been using his Original Austrian-made Arcus bow for several years. Here's what he has to say: "I have owned a number of very fine French and English bows and none have had the outstanding playing and sound characteristics of the Arcus bow. It is almost impossible to find a bow with which to play a delicate and light piece and a heavy and loud one with the same easy refinement and comfort as with my Arcus bow. The quality of sound is wonderful and leaves nothing to be desired".

Lynn Harrell sent a video birthday greeting to Orlando Cole on the occasion of his teacher's 100th birthday. Lynn performs a little bit of Chopin using his Original Austrian-made Arcus bow. If you fast forward to the 4:40 mark, he raves about his "new bow" and shows off a little of it's versatility.
