SHAR is proud to be the sole distributor of the Model 40 nickel mounted bows from Marco Raposo. After extensive testing of the bows from the leading bow makers in Brazil, we have selected those from Marco Raposo as our choice. Each bow is evaluated with two criteria in mind: wood quality and playing characteristics. Only those that meet this criteria are chosen to be a Model 40 bow. This particular model is designed for the intermediate student. 4/4 size.
The H. R. Wilhelm Premier line of bows is our most recent addition to our extensive bow collection. The strength of stick and agile feel work together to create a bow that has a powerful tone, yet is easy to control in more difficult passages. These bows are meticulously crafted in Germany using excellent quality Pernambuco. Offered with either silver or nickel mountings, these bows are a great fit in the hands of a serious student seeking to make the most out of their current instrument.
Do you need a new bow? Most players, regardless of skill level, eventually come to the realization that a new bow would be beneficial to their technical and musical development. If your current bow feels like it slips and skates on the surface of the string... if you have a hard time producing more than just a few tone colors... if your off-the-string bowings are noisy and hard to control, then you should consider trying different bows.
