Maple Leaf Strings Pernambuco-Wrapped Carbon Fiber Violin Bow

Maple Leaf Strings Pernambuco-Wrapped Carbon Fiber Violin Bow


“Maple leaf has pushed the boundaries of orchestral technology with this beautiful bow. The camber is carbon-fiber, with a pernambuco wrap. This gives it the resilience of carbon-fiber construction, but allows it to retain the tonal characteristics and playability of a solid pernambuco wood bow. At half the price of their pernambuco bow, it’s an excellent choice for the outdoor player, the leveling-up student, or the seasoned professional.”

- Wyatt

“This unassuming violin found its way to IMC as a trade-in, and I absolutely love its tone! It is perfectly broken in and has a rich warmth in the lower midrange that fills the room. This particular violin offers tremendous value to the player as it’s the only violin in its price range that I’ve heard sing like it does. Come give it a try and hear for yourself!"
