AR Distribution has been established in the UK since 2001. Back in the beginning when we heard about Arcus bows we were impressed by their sound and playability so decided to bring them to the UK and Ireland. Today Arcus have a great many professional players using their bows. Our product line has expanded to include more great products, each selected because of its high quality and performance. We are the sole European Distributor for Andrea Rosin and the sole UK distributor for Warchal Strings, Arcus bows and Rositini Rosin.

Warchal Strings  developed by Bohdan Warchal in Slovakia. Bohdan is a professional violinist and combines his knowledge of instruments with acoustic research to produce the superb Warchal range of Strings.

We highly recommend trying the Amber strings for violin if you haven't already.
