Initially inspired by the innovative carbon fibre bows of Benoit Rolland, JonPaul Bows have been developing a range of carbon fibre bows for violin, viola, cello and double bass over a number of years. In response to comments about the different tonal qualities of carbon fibre and wooden bows, they have designed their “Fusion” models, featuring a core carbon-fibre stick which is then wrapped in wood, to capture the warm sound of pernambuco while retaining the playing characteristics of carbon fibre. The “Fusion Silver” model comes with superior silver mounts, and is slightly heavier than JonPaul’s fully carbon fibre models, at around 62 grams.
