Cello bows

The cello bow bides its time as an afterthought which is often chosen due to the few cello bows available for sale. Especially for beginning cello players, however, the real question is whether their cello bow will be a stumbling block, if not an adversary, in their struggle to create a good sound, or if their cello bow 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 old German cello bows and fine French cello bows for sale in Corilon's online catalogue, and these same standards guide us in our search for fine cello bows by sought-after historic masters such as Joseph Alfred Lamy, Louis Gillet, Nicolas Maline and J.B. Vuillaume. Corilon violins present you a hand-picked portfolio of cello bows in a broad price range, all of which have been 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 fine cello bows by a special maker or of a particular origin by typing a phrase such as "French cello bow" or "German cello bow" into the search box. Buy fine cello bows online at Corilon violins: ready to play, with 30 days returns, optional certificate, each one approved and professionally set up by our professional violin makers.
