Cello bows

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 for sale. 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 fine quality German, English and 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 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 German cello bows, French cello bows and master cello bows online from Corilon violins: each one has been professionally restored by our professional violin maker and ready to play.
