High Performance Bows for High Performance Players

You've worked long and hard to develop your skills and you have a repertoire of advanced techniques. You know what you want to express in your playing. Now, here is the perfect partner that feels your every impulse and responds in-kind. After three years of painstaking development and countless professional trials and tests, the new PRESTO® Impulse is born. Meticulous attention to every detail assures that the PRESTO® Impulse stands ready to accurately reproduce your every nuance, and nothing more. Splendid tracking ability, superb control and a warm tone allow you to keep your mind, and your heart, on your performance.

When we set out to develop this new bow, we started with a list of "must-haves":
- The bow must feel alive and resilient, just like a fine-quality wood bow
- Weight and balance must be exactly like a traditional bow so that tedious re-learning of bowing techniques would not be necessary
- Each bow must conform to strict manufacturing standards, for consistency; yet, within defined parameters, the blending of carbon resins must be such that a variety of sticks would be made available for audition. In this way, a skilled violinist is able to discover the perfect PRESTO® Impulse bow
- Each bow must be fitted and finished by hand, to assure proper operation and hand-feel

Andres Cardenes"The Presto Impulse bow is remarkable. I was amazed at the response, clarity and tone it produces. This is a serious endorsement from me, as I have always shunned carbon fiber bows due to their lack of an "organic" feel. This bow feels and responds like a first rate bow in many ways. It doesn't produce a buttery tone like a great Pecatte or Simon, but it's the next best thing. Congratulations to Shar on a wonderful achievement."

    a fine bow

    I already own two nice bows (a Hill and a Vuillaume), but I thought a carbon fiber bow would be good to use for teaching, performing outdoors, etc….once I started playing with the Presto Impulse, found that it actually has all the qualities that I look for in a fine bow and it makes my violin sound fabulous. I haven’t played with my other bows since! ... (See Full Review)

    The Perfect Bow!

    The Presto Impulse Carbon Fiber Bow is EXACTLY what I've been looking for. I have a case full of fine old French bows and what I have found is that more and more I started grabbing for my Presto mpulse. Now it is all I use. It is fine enough for classical playing, strong enough for heavy rock music, and tough enough for the percussive work that we incorporate into our show. The stick tends towards the stiff side, but not at the detriment to sensitivity. For me it's perfect. ~Adam DeGraff, violinist www.TheDuelingFiddlers.com ... (See Full Review)
