Established in 1995, Marco Raposo bows manufactures the finest quality bows for violin, viola, cello and bass, for professionals and advanced students. Their goal is to assure quality to our customers and protect the environment. The company operates a sizeable production facility and manages a large neighbouring area of forested land, which will eventually serve as a perpetual resource for the enterprise. They maintain a policy of sustainable development and work closely with forestry officials to ensure that it will continue to grow in an environmentally sound manner. Simply for Strings' team of professional players and teachers hand-select each bow to exacting criteria, including examining the hair, camber of the bow and the bow's ability and sound across different techniques. All bows ship in a secure and well-packed tube for safe arrival to you.
