Hand Made in Brazil from Sustainable Pernambuco. The Marco Raposo workshop is situated high in the mountains of Brazil’s Atlantic Forest, home of the Pernambuco, the Pau-Brasil. Established in 1995, the workshop manufactures the finest quality bows for violin, viola, cello and bass, for professionals and advanced students.
Each bow has a label signed by the maker (who will not be Marco Raposo himself) and made with the same care that Marco has extended to the company’s ownership and management of sustainable forest and the recycling of old wood from previous agricultural enterprises.
The wholesaler allows these bows to go out on approval before I buy, which is rather useful! However please don't ask unless you are seriously considering one.
They are available in sizes down to 1/4 in violin, including 7/8. Cello sizes down to 1/4. Bass in French and German. They are not cheap so I don't expect to sell many below 4/4, make contact if you are interested. I have only listed the 4/4 size below. Small sizes are cheaper.
By the way since I have a cello bow here that isn't selling, I have reduced it to BELOW the price at Gear4Music. I doubt if you will find it lower. I do also have a used silver violin 4/4 bow.
