Arcos Brasil Master Replica Violin Bow

Arcos Brasil is a Brazilian/American manufacturer of bows and other violin family products.  I have been doing business with Arcos Brasil for many years because they have provided consistently excellent quality products, as well as responsive service. This is very important to me as a retailer to know that IF there is a problem, they will work with me to resolve the issue.

Arcos Brasil qualifies their bows by the mounting used to adorn the sticks.

Here is a general guide to the bows:

Nickel - Somewhat flexible sticks, sometimes thicker material used to offset this - new makers to the firm, warmer sounding sticks- a very good introduction into the tone world of Pernambuco bows!

Silver (Ebony/Snakewood/Horn Frogs) - Moderately dense wood, stiffer sticks - more experienced makers, more crispness to the bite in the sound - for advancing players

Silver Special and Limited- Select Pernambuco, even stronger sticks, brighter tone quality - very experienced makers.  Professionals and students alike will enjoy these.

Master Copy - Subtle and sophisticated, finely selected Pernambuco, most experienced makers, wide variety of fine tone qualities is available with these sticks- Professional quality bows

Gold - As one would expect, the most choice material is used to produce very dense and strong sticks, made by the most prolific and experienced makers of this firm. -  Professional quality bows
