An ideal bow of light facility and rich tonality, the LUMA delivers a truly enlightened performance to every style.
With a nod to the great French bowmakers Lamy and Voirin, the LUMA has a high, shimmering timbre as silky as its handling. The Aero frog design off-loads the hand while the lightness of the shaft allows a facile and nimble response for flashy, technical passages. The bow’s silvery tone and graceful agility is well-suited to intimate settings, blends well in ensembles, and is sought by players of all styles. It appeals especially to players desiring lightness in weight and character.
Popular with Bluegrass and Jazz fiddlers, the CodaBow Luma offers the player an extraordinarily polished response, with little surface noise. Its attack is not quick, but rather smooth and clean - almost feathery. It weighs in at only 58 grams, but produces a strong, clear tone, for such a light stick. A great companion bow and a good choice for advancing students.
The LUMA features specialized performance both timeless and rare. Inspired by the historically remarkable bows of Voirin, Lamy, and Thomassin that possess both light facility and rich tonality, CodaBow’s design team combined the skills of master makers, leading scientists, and professional artists to create this enlightened design.
An excellent companion bow to the more classical DIAMOND designs, the LUMA offers light touch (58 gms) and quick response while still delivering layered sound. The LUMA accesses new frontiers for a wide range of styles. Compelling for Bluegrass, Jazz, and Classical players alike, the LUMA complements the traditional bows in a player’s case.
The LUMA’s trademark Graphite Diamond Weave architecture extends precisely from button to tip. This naturally-elegant technology strikes the highly-sought balance between strength and flexibility. The LUMA’s Acoustic Core, comprised of a medley of advanced fibers, imbues a natural sensitivity and organic characteristic to this complementary design.
"The LUMA is a tribute to history’s innovative makers and a testament to modern bow design,” said Jeff Van Fossen, president of CodaBow International.
