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 violoncello 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 violoncello'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.
