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.

Great addition to my bows

Very nice and well balanced on both my 15” and 16” violas

Lucille Kessler

My daughter love this bow, it’s light weight and easy for her to navigate. It’s comfy and beautiful. Seems to be holding up well.


It’s amazing


I like the sound it produces for the price. However, hairs started to break after the first use.

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...
