Explore the world of L'Archet Brasil with our exquisite Half-Mounted Viola Bow, meticulously crafted from aged Brazilian ipe wood. Each bow proudly bears the stamp of an individual L'Archet Brasil bow maker, reflecting a commitment to exceptional craftsmanship, balance, sound, beauty, and playability.

Key Features:

  • Aged Ipe Wood: Our viola bows are expertly crafted from aged ipe wood, a Brazilian hardwood known for its durability and tonal qualities. The choice of aged ipe wood ensures a rich and resonant tone, contributing to a distinctive and nuanced sound.

  • Half-Mounted Nickel Frog with Parisian Eye: The half-mounted nickel frog, featuring a classic Parisian eye design, adds a touch of elegance and durability to the bow, ensuring a reliable and visually appealing performance.

  • Abalone Slide and Bone Tip: The abalone slide and bone tip contribute to the bow's aesthetic allure, showcasing the meticulous attention to detail that defines L'Archet Brasil bows.

  • Silver Winding and Goat-Leather Thumb-Grip: The silver winding not only adds a touch of refinement but also complements the comfortable goat-leather thumb-grip, providing a secure and enjoyable playing experience.

  • Stamped with Bow Maker's Name: Each bow proudly displays the stamp of the skilled bow maker, emphasizing the individuality and expertise that goes into crafting every L'Archet Brasil viola bow.

Ipe Wood vs. Pernambuco: While Pernambuco has been the preferred wood for bow makers for centuries, the scarcity and regulations surrounding its sale have led L'Archet Brasil to introduce a new lineup using ipe, also known as Brazilian walnut. In blindfold tests, our violists couldn't discern differences between ipe and pernambuco bows of similar price ranges, showcasing the remarkable qualities of our ipe bows.

L'Archet Brasil is committed to offering ipe bows even when pernambuco becomes available for export. Experience the outstanding playability and tone production of our Half-Mounted Viola Bow, carefully chosen from a vast selection to ensure the best musical experience.

In-Home Trial and Customization: We understand the importance of finding the perfect bow that suits your playing style. Arrange an in-home trial to experience the unparalleled craftsmanship and sound enhancement that L'Archet Brasil bows provide.
