Features & Benefits of this Codabow:

  • Advanced & Organic Fibres: Inspired by centuries of tradition and decades of fine bow making experience, the GS delivers exquisite handling and expressive sound once reserved only for the finest master bows. Both advanced and organic fibres expertly blended bestow natural response, sensitivity, and beauty.

  • 100% Kevlar Acoustic Core: The Pure Kevlar acoustic core fibres which run through the bow helps to provide more power in the bowing action, whilst still offering the natural sensitivity and tonal characteristics of fine Pernambuco wood.
  • In-Touch™ Technology: In-Touch™ Technology uses unidirectional carbon fibres running from button to tip. The bi-lateral positioning of the fibres connects the player precisely to the tip and transmits their energy directly to the violin. This architecture enhances lateral stability, offers superior tracking, and gives exceptional response. More supple than its Diamond cousins, the bow appeals to players seeking experience in the finest French tradition.
  • Identity: Each Marquise has its own unique identification number. When registered with Codabow, this number will activate the lifetime warranty, and entitle the original owner to a complement of priority workshop services, including rehairing, model upgrades, and customisation.
  • Crafted from Xebony: XEBONY® is an elegant solution to the world’s endangered supply of instrument-grade Ebony. Comprised of organic fibres and resin, XEBONY® boasts a rich lustre and natural grain that impresses players and bow makers alike. Stronger and more durable than natural Ebony, XEBONY® offers improved performance while conserving our endangered resources.
  • GlobalBow™: Contains no endangered, regulated, or monitored species (wildlife or fauna), and pass freely through international Customs so players avoid the travel concerns of traditional bows.
