I am delighted with my Arcus P9 bow. The tone of the Arcus is rich, powerful and smooth, the exquisite balance allows it to stop on a dime in Martelé and other staccato strokes, and its maneuverability makes intricate bowing patterns much more manageable.

I blush to say that I am now playing my Arcus more than I am my fine antique French bow, although when I return to my old bow, I find that the Arcus has taught me lessons which apply to the old bow as well. I certainly will be recommending these bows to all players that I know.
