Carbon fiber bows are the most robust yet playable bows on the market to date. Contrary to popular belief about carbon fiber bows, they actually produce a decent sound. This is why I myself have performed on carbon fiber bows ever since I first got my hands on one when I was only 13 years old. The advantage of using carbon fiber bows over wooden made bows is that you can hit the bow as hard as you want on the string and fingerboard for pieces that require extended technique, and still have your bow look perfectly fine without a scratch. These bows last forever, so it is the greatest investment one could ever make, with minimal depreciation. I hope you guys enjoy the Fiesta bow! 

BONUS: you were receive all my sheet music for free if you purchase a Fiesta bow. I will send you a discount code for 100% off all my sheet music.

Arco maravilloso

Increíble este arco. Tardó 10 días en llegar a mi casa a España. Muy bien empaquetado, aunque lo pedí con cerdas blancas, llegó con cerdas blancas y negras, pero con un repuesto de pelo blanco de regalo. Funciona perfectamente, está equilibrado, es ligero, la respuesta es rápido, suena muy dulce y es fácil tocar. A los 2 segundos de sujetarlo notas que es un gran arco. Soy profesor de contrabajo y a mi compañero también le ha encantado y lo estamos recomendando a alumnos. Gracias Xavier

Great bow!

Balanced incredibly well, lightweight and sounds great! I love this bow! However just a warning with the case, it is exactly as shiny as it is in the pictures, not to mention the snakeskin. It's a very high quality, while being very overkill. Overall, great product!

Great bow

I'm a person who has always played German bows and I bought this bow wanting to learning French bow. This bow feels great in my hand and the only issue I had is it took forever to get, but that not Xavier's fault. The reason why my took so long is because of the cover epidemic and US customs had it for a while, because I had a couple updates and then they stopped coming. So I called the postal service and they told my customs has it and they don't know when it will be release. After custom released it I got the updates again and it came. Overall a great bow for anyone wanting to try French bow out without a real big budget to spend. I did go for the case and mine was a very nice quality case for the money. So I do recommend trying this bow out. It's really worth the money, but beware if you buy it now you might have to wait awhile longer because of the covid epidemic. Don't let that stop you though; I feel the wait is worth it!

My bow hasn’t arrived yet :(

I ordered a month ago and it still hasn’t arrived :( just waiting on it. I suppose the covid epidemic might have slowed down deliveries, but I haven’t received many updates on its progress. So I don’t really know what’s happening.
