Presto® Audition Carbon Fiber Viola Bow - Full Size
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.
Nickel mounted, open weave back carbon-fiber finish.

Ratings & Reviews
ALMOST perfect except... it's not straight.
I really like the feel of these bows but we've tried the violin versions and now viola versions and they all have the same issue. They are straight when you don't tighten the bow and "not straight" slight slant when you tighten it ... this really shouldn't happen with carbon fiber. I'm debating whether to return this one because it does bother me a bit. The hair and feel of the bow is nice. Looks nice too. I just wish it was straight when you use it! Maybe it's their hairing process that has the issue because when you tighten it, left bow hairs are always shorter than right bow hair so the thing warps right...
I ordered this bow a few days ago and just got it today. I can already say that I love it! The tone that it produces is superb, and it is very good quality for a cheaper carbon fiber bow. I also noticed that the bow has a lot more bounce than my pernumbuco bow. Very satisfied with this product. I would recommend it to my fellow viola players.
Corbon fiber bow
Very nice quality for the price, good sound production.
Great Bow; Great Price
This is a great bow. It's strong, plays well and produces a great sound. It has a great bounce but is still easy to control. To be honest, I still prefer my wood bow, but I think that's just because it's a rather high quality wood bow. Though this new bow has still been an excellent backup bow for me. For the price you pay for this, you're getting way more. I highly recommend it! as I do Shar in general. I'm very satisfied.
This is a great bow for the price! It's very nicely balanced and produces a good tone. I am very pleased with mine.
