Characteristics of the Muesing violin bow C5

Muesing C5 bow sticks are made from braided carbon sheets solidified with a very thin layer of epoxy resin. This skilful preparation ensures very specific lightness and stiffness to spread the vibration.

These bows are lighter than usual wood or carbon bows: while those weigh about 61g, the Muesing Violin bow C5 weigh about 54g. Hence they are extremely flexible and responsive compared to other bows. This impression of lightness will be most pleasant during your long sessions of concerts, practice or work.

The frog is adorned with an abalone eye and the bow is full-lined in metal. As for the thumbpiece, it is made of leather.

Finally, the fittings of this bow are all made of silver.


Get to know the Muesing bows

Muesing bows are classified in different categories, called C1, C2, C3, C4, and C5. Hence you must know what type of bow you’re facing and what exactly these categories stand for. Of course, since they are all made in a workshop, each stick is different has to go through careful inspection and quality control before being used.

C1 sticks are none of our concern – they were deemed unfit for use, and thus rejected Whereas the C2tier, the most bottom-of-the-range Muesing sticks, are already way above the performances of usual carbon bows. And the higher you climb on the Muesing range, the stricter the criteria become.

That’s why only exceptional bows are branded with the gold letters Muesing C5.


15-year guarantee

Bernd Muesing has such trust in the quality of its bows that each of each stick is under a 15-year guarantee. Of course this does not include the hair, the fittings, the thumbpiece, the screw, nor the eye. The frog, however, is under a 2-year guarantee.

However, note that the guarantee is not exclusive to the buyer of the bow – if you ever wish to change your bow to get a better model, the next owners of your previous bow will benefit from the guarantee as well.
