Signature designs crafted in the timeless tradition of master makers.

Understanding that the bow is the agent of expression for string players, CodaBow has devoted decades to helping players realize their true voice. For nearly 10 years, CodaBow, together with master bow maker Roger Zabinski, has crafted bespoke carbon-fiber bows for private musicians, tailored to realize a player’s ideal and deliver a refined Master experience beyond our popular Performance line. We referred to these special bows as MARQUISEs, evocative of the distinctive cut of diamond prized for its elegance and sophistication. Though we have crafted bespoke master bows selectively for years, recent technological breakthroughs allow us to now avail this elevated standard of bow making to the broader public through The Marquise Experience. From the first cut to the final polish, we dedicate our talent and expertise to each MARQUISE. This shared devotion to the instrument of your expression is humbly passed from our hands to yours​

MarquiseTM ONE

For ages the romance of an artist and their instrument has been venerated as something almost mystical. In a relationship that whispers of the metaphysical, string players commune with bow and instrument in a indivisible triune bond: the artist stirring the voice of the instrument through the breath of the bow. As an astronomer, gazing upward, seeks to count the stars and in measuring them comprehend their magnificence, so a musician,  contemplating the notes he breathes into the air, desires to unlock the alchemy that excites them into existence.

For players seeking a completely original experience, our bespoke MARQUISE starts with your narrative, your personal story. No collections or catalogues here, only a listening ear.

The bow is my breath
