Have you ever dreamt of a bow that sounds like a fine old pernambuco bow, handles with great ease, bounces extremely easy, offers perfect durability and reliability, looks great but doesn't cost a fortune? 

Well, here it is  - the Müsing bow is here to change the world and improve your playing and the sound of your instrument.

A Revolutionary Innovative Process


Our bows are 100% made in Germany in a unique process from 3-D-woven carbon fiber and are the perfect replacement for endangered pernambuco and a major step up from simple carbon bows.

Carbon Fiber

The fibers of our bows are braided seamlessly, resulting in a very uniform and smooth structure. Carbon is the perfect replacement for pernambuco wood which is protected since 2008. Compared to simple carbon bows, Müsing bows offer a crucial improvement when it comes to sound and play.

The Perfect Bow

When we designed the bows for the violin family we did not only take reference from traditional bows. We want our bows to match the setup of today's instruments and 21st century strings, as the interaction between bow and string is the determining factor for the playability of the bow.



To achieve ultimate durability and reliabilty we have developed a new stainless steel outfit. The winding, underslide and ferrule are all made from stainless steel, which will look great even after decades of intense playing. The button is cut from solid aircraft grade aluminium, as are the bearings that provide the mechanism with the most durable and easy function. The frog is cut from fine ebony, the slide and eyes from beautiful mother of pearl.

Most ergonomic frog and button ever

We are constantly trying to improve and to optimize our bows in order to perfectly meet your needs. That's how we worked out a modern and ergonomic design that makes holding the bow a bit easier and more comfortable. 

Star-shaped button

We realized that sometimes it can be quite a challenge to tighten up a bow properly, especially when your fingers are a little slippery or your bow is in general hard to tighten as it happens often with cello bows.

The five-winged, modern button of our Müsing bows however offers an amazing grip and very ergonomic hold, especially compared to the classic octagonal button. 

Modern Style Frog

We also pulled up the inner edge of the frog (next to the thumb leather) and made it slightly longer. If you, like most, place your thumb in front of the frog and on the thumb leather, this modern design is particularly comfortable because it increases the contact area between thumb and frog. 

This modern design is available for the Müsing C3 and C4 bows, which are also still available with a classic frog and button.
