About Us

Academy by BBICO is a carbon fibre string bow range established by BBICO (the British Band Instrument Company) in North London in the UK. 

The Academy range offer a selection of carbon fibre bows, supplied in 4/4 size and designed with the student market in mind. The bows are now offered through a number of our Dealers within the UK and overseas markets.

Academy was set up in 2019 due to an identified need to supply bows that are consistent in quality, durability and playability. It was also considered important that the bows have a positive environmental benefit by not using Pernambuco and Brazilwood. We believe that our Carbon composite bows offer a better solution than the wooden equivalent at a similar price and are likely to last much longer.

All Academy bows are consistent in quality, durability and are perfect for fulfilling the requirements of a student musician wanting to fulfil their ability and progress their instrumental skills. Currently, our range provides solutions for Violin, Viola and Cello.
