Do you dream of a bow that can be handled with great ease and comfort, that bounces without any effort, but doesn't wobble or slip? A bow that is extremely durable and strong, but also sounds fantastic? A bow that can be compared to the finest and most expensive pernambuco bows, but still doesn't cost a fortune?
Well, here it is.
When the Müsing bows were introduced at the Mondomusica in Cremona in 2017, this was hard to believe for many people. But since then, more and more musicians all over the world started playing enthusiastically with their Müsing bows, and more and more fall in love with them every single day.
A revolutionary manufacturing 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.
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.
Ergonomic frog and button
We are constantly trying to improve and to optimize our bows to adapt them perfectly to your needs. Thus, we have worked out an ergonomically optimized design that allows easier and more comfortable handling of the bow. Both, the Müsing C3 and C4 bows are each available in this ergonomic, modern design.
Depending on whether you prefer to position your thumb in front of or inside the frog while playing, you might find the ergonomic or classic shape of the Müsing frog more comfortable:
