Marco Raposo master bow bass
For the Marco Raposo bows, used pernambuco wood is used,
e.g. use of pasture fences. The huge advantage of this wood
results from the enormously long and natural drying period.
But since this resource is finite too, Marco Raposo has had its
own forests with successful afforestation programs for many
years and is thus successfully contributing to the protection of
the tropical forest.
Of course, all bows are tested with the Lucci meter and made
by experienced bow makers. Each bow has a pendant
with the name of the bowmaker.
