When Benoît Rolland conceived Spiccato® in the early 1980’s, his project was twice ground-breaking: he was creating the technology for the first carbon fiber bow of concert quality at a time when luthiers and musicians strongly favored classicism; moreover, he invented what seemed then impossible: an invisible mechanism allowing the musician to adjust at will the camber of the bow.
