Steinway black high grade carbon composite stick with silver alloy face and nickel silver lapping.
A strong stick at the correct weight makes this bow easy to control by the student player. Consistent balance and forgiving feel will aid the production of a clear, focused tone.
Unless stated otherwise all our bows are supplied with a starter coat of premium quality William Salchow rosin. Good, fresh rosin is essential to obtain the best performance from any bow.

Pros: Beautifully made, well balanced, resonant tone. This bow really sings in harmony with my cello and is wonderful for delicate, fast bow work.
Cons: May be a little too light for some players' tastes. Always try before you buy when spending more than £200 on a bow!
Other: I bought this bow as a backup to occasionally lend to students and to have something to play with when my main bow goes in for its annual rehair. I had tried (and quite liked) the John Paul Avanti bow a while back. My budget didn't stretch to that so I thought I'd try the Bravo. I'm delighted I did! In many ways I prefer it to the Avanti - I find it better balanced and more manoeuvrable. I now use it frequently in recording sessions to get a slightly different sound and touch from my main bow. You'd pay considerably more for a wooden bow of this calibre.
