Archet ARC.JP is a distinguished Japanese bow-making workshop founded in 1983. Inspired by the masterful creations of French bow makers such as Tourte, Peccatte, and Sartory, Archet combines traditional French styles and techniques with Japanese craftsmanship to produce bows of exceptional playability, strength, and tonal richness. Simply for Strings is an authorised stockist of Archet Bows, proudly offering a selection of bows suitable for intermediate, advanced and professional musicians.


  • Pernambuco
  • Round stick
  • Silver winding
  • Parisian shell eye
  • Nickel-silver mounted
  • Stamped ‘ARC.JP’
  • Based on an Ouchard model
  • Weighs 61.6 grams

This Ouchard model from Archet (stamped “ARC.JP”) is a well-balanced bow that offers good tone clarity in both piano and forte playing. The stick is free from the instabilities that sometimes present in bows at this price point, and carries itself smoothly from frog to tip. With on-the-string and bouncing bow strokes all able to be achieved comfortably, this is a suitable bow for players progressing through the higher AMEB Grades (approximately Gr. 6 - AMusA), or an equivalent level.

At Simply for Strings, each bow is hand-selected to exacting criteria, including examining the hair, camber of the bow and the bow's ability and sound across different techniques.

Please note, each bow is unique and handcrafted – your new bow may look slightly different to the photograph used.
