Thank you for Arcus bows!

As a violist who has experienced a lot of tendonitis a lightweight bow such as these is most welcomed… especially when it draws such a deep, full and rich tone from my viola (Geoffrey Ovington, 1983, NY). It is easy to control in various different bowings from spiccato to détaché, and accented beginnings of notes come out with intense clarity. There is a flexibility and responsiveness to this bow which makes my wooden one feel a bit clumsy – as if going from a sports car to a van!
