Your Metropolitan bow has changed my life. I have been been using it in the show now ever since I recieved it and the consistency from show to show is remarkable. The bows balance and tone is fantastic. I am so relaxed. It is such a joy to play. Thank you for your vision and art. I am truly blessed to play this bow.

Carbon fiber bass bow, available with white hair only.

"These bows capture the exquisite playing characteristics of the old masters." ---Tim Cobb, Principal Bassist of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and professor at The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of Music.

The concept was simple: we wanted to create a classic-style bow using carbon fiber. Unlike other modern carbon fiber bass bows, this bow is created using the same principles used by PW Bryant, Marcel LaPierre, Andre and Joseph Vigneron, and Fetique. CodaBow was able to recreate the density and flexibility of the wood used by the original makers and together we crafted an amalgamation of the classic bows' finest qualities.

Made here in the U.S., CodaBows have always been known for their quality, and now, with help from our shop, they have stepped into the bass bow market.

As part of his continuing effort to provide top quality, affordable products to double bass players of all levels, David Gage announces the release of The Metropolitan™ carbon fiber bass bow. Based on the design characteristics of classic models, The Metropolitan™ represents the fruit of an exhaustive quest to isolate the distinctive qualities of the finest bass bows and to then combine those traits into a single amalgam. David Gage was able to use carbon fiber to achieve this end through his partnership with CodaBow of Winona, Minnesota. CodaBow, a firm revered for its high-quality cello, violin, and viola bows, introduced the craftsmen at David Gage's shop to the practically infinite possibilities of working with carbon fiber. Taking advantage of advances in "woven fiber" technology, David Gage and CodaBow created a bow that responds with tone and agility akin to the work of the great master bowmakers.
