This violin bow was made in the Japanese workshop ‘Archet.’ The Archet workshop has been active since 1983. Their bows are inspired by the master French bow makers such as Tourte, Peccatte and Sartory. They aim to not only understand, but to recreate the strength, beauty and rich tone of the famous French bows with Japanese techniques. The player is at the heart of every bow they produce and as such their range has been developed in co-operation with renowned performers and soloists all over the world. They aim to make each bow the perfect partner for the player with a beautiful blend between timbre, volume and playability. They have a large range of bows from ones that are more suited to the intermediate-level player to the top-quality soloist bows made by master craftsmen. Archet have been recognized around the world for their craftsmanship, winning various prizes and have received endorsement from well-known performers including Pinchas Zukerman. 

This violin bow is stamped ‘Archet A Tokio,’ and is one of the Archet workshop's high-grade bows. This bow is made from fine pernambucco. Archet pride themselves on having some of the finest quality pernambucco that is currently available anywhere in the world. The stick has been rounded and measures 740mm in length. It has silver lapping and an ebony frog. It is silver mounted with a shell Parisian eye. This bow is based on a Sartory model.

This bow has a very light feel to it and a flexible stick. It is beautifully balanced and has a good level of control. The weight and balance have been adjusted to suit various bow-strokes while retaining a subtle and elegant sound quality. This bow would be suitable for tertiary level study and the advanced to professional level musician.
