Modern carbon fiber bow

The Escent carbon fiber bow is made for advanced and professional musicians who are looking for a precise tonal palette. In the CodaBow lineup, this bow is a mix between the Diamond GX and the Marquise GS. It is a delight for professional musicians looking for a quality bow at a very attractive price.

The Escent bow is perfect to develop sound palette. It offers its musician the possibility of extending his technical capacities to tend towards more mature sounds and pro musical performances.

The Escent bow offers a soft responsiveness resembling that of bows designed in Pernambuco. The Escent bows consist of a natural plant fiber central core and related architecture constructed of unidirectional carbon fibers. It’s a hybrid approach combining a more traditional design with new materials. This construction pattern provides a deep connection between the strings and the bow and generates a clear sound allowing musicians to leap across genres and styles.
The frog has also been redesigned for great agility with a simplified control. Its design allows a good grip. It facilitates both the control of the bow and the pressure that is exerted on the strings.

Whether you are facing university jurors, playing weddings between orchestra performances, or crossing genres in the studio, the next steppingstone on your journey awaits with the CodaBow Escent.




Why use a carbon fiber bow?

One of the main advantages of carbon fiber bows is that they can be designed and then manufactured following the engineers’ instructions to the smallest detail. These bows are truly designed to meet very specific needs. The carbon fiber structure ensures stability over time as opposed to wood, which is a constantly evolving material. In the same manner, the engineering applied to carbon fiber bows is not particularly applicable to wooden bows.

How to choose a CodaBow?

CodaBow bows are created depending on the level of the violinists. Their needs have been carefully studied in order to meet the needs of each stage in the learning progression of an instrument, as well as the playing style of the instrumentalist. Accordingly, 4 differentiation points are emphasized for each bow:

  • Balance – The center of inertia that the player experiences while playing with the bow
  • Weight – The weight felt by the player
  • Feel – The sensation the instrumentalist feels when using the bow
  • Rigidity – The force required for the stroke of the bow

A bow must assist the instrumentalist during his musical training and later during his performances. It must be stable, flexible, and strong and at the same time adapt to the needs of the musician at any given time. CodaBow has concentrated its efforts on the technical aspects of bow playing and bow movements thus providing several ranges for beginners, intermediate and professional violinists. Each bow stick is designed specifically to accommodate to the progress of the instrumentalist so that he can further develop and improve his technique. Therefore, the weight distribution, balance and rigidity of the stick, as well as the feel of the strings differ from one bow to another.

Why is the bow important for the clarity of your sound?

A bow must have an ideal balance positioned towards the tip in order to properly rub the strings of the instrument. This balance is key to the clarity of sound and the nuances you will be able to produce.

When should I rehair my bow?

CodaBow recommends rehairing your bow every 6 to 12 months. The wear and tear of your bow’s hair depends on a variety of factors such as playing and storage conditions. For more information, please read our article on Why would you want to rehair your bow?

How do I clean my bow?

CodaBow suggests that you clean the stick and the frog of your bow with a microfiber cloth to remove all rosin residue and any sweat stains caused by your hands and fingers.

How do I take care of my bow?

Just like your instrument, the best place for a bow when it is not being used is its case. Store it carefully inside your case.

Who can rehair a CodaBow bow?

Although CodaBow bows use cutting edge materials, they are made much like traditional bows. The same general care and maintenance of a wooden bow applies to CodaBow bows as well. Your archetier or luthier should not have any trouble rehairing your CodaBow bow.
