PRESTO® Performance Series carbon fiber bows have gained a loyal following among players and teachers alike. Combining modern, strong, state-of-the-art materials with traditional handcraft, these bows are as impressive and beautiful to look at as they are to play. Agile handling, arrow-straight tracking and full tonal power are hallmarks of these fine bows. Decidedly stunning in appearance due to the open weave carbon cloth, these bows are far better suited for severe performance conditions than wood bows, including pernambuco. And, as the world's supply of expensive pernambuco wood disappears, PRESTO® Performance Series bows deliver more performance for your dollar than any fine bow on the market today. PRESTO® bows are only made with aerospace-grade fibers and resins. The engineering process guarantees longevity by eliminating "creep," a flaw in carbon-fiber manufacture that can warp a bow or diminish camber over time. All bows are thoroughly inspected, meaning only bows with the best craftsmanship are sent to our customers.
Nickel mounted, open weave back carbon-fiber finish.

We're excited to introduce these master-made bows from Steffan Kuhnla of Bad Bambrach, Germany. Having apprenticed with R. Messing, C.O. Durrschmidt and R.H. Leicht in the 1980s, Kuhnla became a master bowmaker in 1988 and has crafted outstanding bows for thousands of musicians since that time. The choice selection of pernambuco and Kuhnla's exacting craftsmanship produces bows that play effortlessly, speak with clarity, and reveal the full range of the instrument's tone.
