This Carbon Fiber Cello Bow is manufactured to replicate the perfect weight and curve of an expensive Pernambuco wood bow. If you're spending less than $400 on a wood bow, we recommend you go with Carbon Fiber. Any less of a quality wood bow will not give you the right weight distribution or curve. Perfect cello bow to upgrade to if you have purchased an electric and/or Cecilio Cello Outfit. High-quality hand-made carbon fiber composite cello bow. Nicely decorated copper mounted ebony frog. Quality Siberian horse hair. Great balance. Very nice arch with good bounce and action. Rosin has never touched this bow. Use your own favorite cello rosin!
