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.

I feel like humidity has stretched my bow hairs and now I cannot tighten it up as much as I need to be able to play. How can I solve this problem?

SHAR Answer:

Hello Tierney! Once your bow hair starts to stretch, there is no way to reverse it, and that usually means it's time for a bow rehair. To increase the longevity of your bow hair, make sure to keep a dehumidifier in your case and keep you case closed when the bow is not in use. We really like the Boveda Humidification System, especially for very humid areas. Thanks!

Would you say this bow is light, medium or heavy weight. I have a light bow was looking for a heavier one as mine bounces too much.

SHAR Answer:

Hello Dawn! These bows range on the light-medium end. There is enough weight toward the tip to keep them from being too bouncy, but they are still lighter than average for violin bows. Let us know if you have any other questions!
