Sourcing and Sorting the Finest Quality Hair

We follow a very detailed and particular process to ensure that only the finest quality hair is used for our bow rehairing. After sourcing high-quality horse hair from countries all over the world, we then hand-select the strongest, most resilient strands to use in our bows. The hair must have the perfect amount of strength and flexibility to achieve a consistent tension and tone.

A Delicate Process that is centuries old

Each bow rehair must follow a meticulous process to preserve the unique characteristics of the bow and sound quality when played. We have perfected the delicate process of rehairing, obsessing over the finest details of hair quantity, length and tension to produce excellent results.
