Bows

Our inventory is always changing, but generally includes new carbon fiber (composite) bows as well as new and previously-owned consigned pernambuco bows.  As with cellos, "used" bows are not less expensive than new if their quality is superior. 

Coda Marquise GS

Coda's new top-of-the-line bow is here.  High-pressure infused Acoustic Core contains a first-ever blend of natural (plant) fibers and Kevlar® that delivers organic timbre, rich overtones, and a full range of expression.  Unidirectional carbon fibers run uninterrupted from frog to tip.  The bow is free of endangered or regulated materials and should pass through Customs with no problem if you are traveling internationally.
