Arcus M6 Viola Bow
A very special feature of the violas is their significant variation in body size and string length. The tension of the string grows with its length, and with it the bow forces that are required to actuate the string in the same way. In addition the larger body also increases in mass, which again induces higher bow forces. The third point is that a smaller body develops a brighter sound, while a larger body sounds significantly darker. In the development or our viola bows we have taken all this in account.
