This double bass bow is made of carbon material (braided in the core). The advantage of carbon is that the quality is guaranteed and all bows are almost the same, while with wooden bows a distinction in quality is possible. The Animando double bass bow is a good choice for beginners and advanced players. The stick is very stable in balance and produces a clear warm tone. An additional advantage is that the stick is very robust and can take a beating. The Animando brand is the own brand of Strijkinstrumentshop.nl and because of its own import it is favorably priced compared to other brands of carbon bows. This double bass string is available in 2 versions; French and German model.
