Hitoshi Maezawa


The quality of a bow for string instruments can be defined mainly on how well it allows the player to gain full control over his performance. Arcus has this quality.

In addition, Arcus bows offer “a new dimension” in sound, compared to most traditional wooden bows. Of course, the “one ideal sound” is a myth, just like different strings made from various materials may all sound beautiful but different. But the sound produced with an Arcus bow is quite like with an old Tourte.

I wish that players will be able to happily appreciate the benefits of the Arcus bows at its reasonable price, and be no longer deluded by the famous names and high prices.
