The different types of rehair

 

Rehair for amateurs and professional musicians

I offer different types of rehair according to your needs. If you are a beginner, or that you play violin as a hobby, the bow rehair for a student outfit is what you need.

On the contrary, for a professional outfit I offer you a special hair, carefully handpicked at my workshop. This selection will improve the playability and lifespan of your bow so that you can make the best of it.

I can also setup the Coruss synthetic bow hair. It requires great skills, but no selection.

How the hair is selected

A careful hair selection will result in a fine bow.

A good rehair depends on how carefully the wedges are setup and how the hair is balanced. However the most important feature to ensure the quality of the bow is the type of hair chosen. Where the hair comes from makes a major difference, though a lot of bow rehairers have noticed a significant drop in quality over the past years. Even with the best hair you can get, you may have to get rid of 60% of the hair to find what you need. That is absolutely worth it, though: a handpicked hair lasts way longer and its playability is unmatched.
