Cello bows

In some cello cases, the cello bow bides its time as an afterthought, a mere accessory which is often chosen only because so few other options are available in terms of cello bows. Especially for beginning cellists, however, the real question is whether their bow will be a stumbling block, if not an adversary, in their struggle to create a good sound, or if it will be a partner that will bring the cello's voice to life and forgive some of the inevitable errors that amateur musicians make. We apply high quality standards in selecting the fine premium-quality German, English and French cello bows for Corilon's online catalogue, and these same standards guide us in our search for older and historic cello bows at more affordable prices. This allows us to present you a hand-picked portfolio of cello bows in a broad price range, all of which are professionally worked over with new hair, leather and winding and ready to play, just like all of our other fine stringed instruments and violin bows. Search our website for bows of a special maker or origin by typing e. g. "French cello bow" or "German cello bow" into the search box. German cello bows, French cello bows and master cello bows from Corilon violins: each one professionally restored and ready to play.
