Of all the stringed instruments, a large proportion are played using a bow. Traditionally made of Pernambuco, bows now come in a variety of materials. While the highest quality bows are still made from Pernambuco, they’re more commonly crafted from Brasilwood, a cheaper cut of the same tree. High quality alternatives such as carbon fiber are now widely considered to equal Pernambuco in quality and come with less of a price tag.
Here at ICON MUSIC we stock Brasilwood and Articul carbon fiber bows. We have a number of sizing options to suit all players young and old.
