About This Item

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. 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..

Silver mounted, open weave black carbon-fiber finish.

Hi, I bought a Presto® Encore Carbon Fiber Violin Bow some years back. Great bow, compared to the old one I had before! It needs to be rehaired and I can't recall what kind of hair it has on it. Can you help me? Thanks, Nell

SHAR Answer:

Hello Allen! All of our bows, including the Presto Encore, are haired with natural horse hair. I hope this helps!

How is this Presto model different from the other Presto bow models?

SHAR Answer:

Thank you for submitting your question! The Presto Audition is the first in Presto's line of intermediate level carbon fiber bows. It will have a higher performance quality than Presto's more basic student level bows and will help students while they are developing new techniques.

Asked On: 05/06/2018

Hi! Does this bow use natural horse hair? How does it pair with the Franz Hoffman Amadeus Violin? Thanks!

SHAR Answer:

This bow, like all Presto bows, uses natural horsehair. This model, the Audition, would be considered a step-up bow for experienced beginners, whereas the Franz Hoffman Amadeus is an entry-level violin. It is more common to use this bow with a higher priced violin.
