Brazilwood Bows

Brazilwood is a term that describes several types of tropical hardwoods native to regions like Brazil. Recognized for its durability and affordability, Brazilwood is commonly employed in crafting entry-level and intermediate viola bows. The density and responsiveness of Brazilwood make it a popular choice among budding musicians and those looking to refine their techniques. For players seeking a balance between quality and affordability, a Brazilwood bow is a commendable choice.

At Ronald Sachs Violins, our curated range embraces viola bows crafted from this exquisite wood, making it easier for enthusiasts and advancing players to find a bow that resonates with their musical journey.

Carbon Fiber Viola Bow

The modern musician's needs are ever-evolving, and carbon fiber bows stand as a testament to this evolution. While traditional wood bows, with their rich history, have their own charm, they can be susceptible to environmental changes, potentially causing them to warp or even break. Carbon fiber, on the other hand, is a material that promises resilience and consistent performance.

Carbon fiber bows are not only robust and less prone to damage but also offer a uniform response, making them a favorite among many contemporary violists. At Ronald Sachs Violins, we recognize the growing demand for such bows and are proud to feature the RSV Black Carbon Fiber Viola Bow in our collection.
