The Revelation was one of the first carbon fiber bass bows. A beautiful workhorse, this bass bow offers lively balance and controlled agility for advancing a double bass player’s arco technique. Balanced action and stiffness produce full and resonant sound with dark tones. Designed as an orchestral (vs solo) bow, the Revelation supports the full range of both instrument and musician.
Select the bass bow style best suited to your musical requirements, either French or German. The frog of the French bass bow is slimmer than the frog of a German bass bow. It’s gripped with the thumb and fingers. The German bow has a wider frog that’s shaped to fit the palm of your hand.

Meet Your Performance Companion
Crafted from carbon fiber, sterling silver, and CodaBow’s proprietary Xebony® blend, the Revelation is a true orchestral workhorse. You’ll appreciate quick initiation at the start of your strokes and a stable connection with the strings throughout your performance. The bow’s traditional-feeling design will feel confident in hand and ready to usher you through unfamiliar musical territory.
Balanced Strength and Flexibility
The Revelation’s expertly woven graphite fibers extend from the frog to the tip to deliver what every musician wants in their bow–strength and flexibility. It’s a joy to pick up and play with, claim Revelation owners, and its design dramatically reduces fatigue after long arco sessions.
Full, Stout Sound with Captivating Tone
The Revelation pulls out every sound you want to hear from your double bass. Expect rich, subtly sweet, undeniably weighty resonance and a full stoutness and dark, clear tone that captivates your audience from your first upstroke to your last downstroke.
Crafted for Advancement
Bassists with decades of orchestral experience enjoy the Revelation just as much as student-intermediate musicians. It’s an ideal bass bow for orchestra members looking to blend, but also offers beautiful and mellow delivery for playing jazz, blues, tango, and rockabilly music.
Ready for a Lifetime of Play
All high-wear components (including tip plate, tip wedge, and button bearings) are precision-made using industry-leading composite materials to ensure a lifetime of worry-free play.
Note the Revelation’s Xebony® frog body. It’s an elegant solution to the world’s endangered supply of instrument-grade ebony. Xebony® is CodaBow’s proprietary blend of natural fibers and resin that boasts rich luster and natural grain, impressing players and bow makers alike. More robust and more durable than natural ebony, Xebony® offers peace of mind while preserving endangered resources.
Designed to Travel Internationally
The Revelation’s GlobalBow® designation ensures the bow contains no endangered, monitored, or regulated species (wildlife or fauna) and can pass worry-free through international customs. Your Revelation bass bow can travel with you from the Sydney Opera House to the Boston Symphony Hall and beyond.
