PRESTO® Carbon Fiber Performance Series

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.

Nickel mounted, open weave back carbon-fiber finish.

    Very nice finish and a well balanced product

    I had this bow on a trial basis and I found it to be very pleasant to hold; it is light weight and had a great balance that I noticed immediately. I was able to play very easily with even ounds and this bow allowed me to make the quick movements I was working on without struggle. Since this was a trial, I actually purchased it from Shar and this is my preferred bow in the Presto Performance family. For me the weight was an important factor in buying a bow as the other bow strained me a bit after a playing or... they were difficult to hold and always had me make an extra effort holding it while trying to make an even sound. I tried the Presto Encore but this one the Audition has all my 5 stars. To me it is the best. I love it!!! ... (See Full Review)

    I love this Bow i have had it for a year now it is still intact i am a little rough with it playing several styles of music. I play down at the farmers market in Bloomington. But i recommend his bow however idk if it is my fault but this bow seems to lose hair. But i think it is my fault for the many different styles i play also the silver coil seems to have lost some of its color and also has unwound a little but not a lot ... (See Full Review)
