bigchuck Tech: Restringing/Rehairing a Fiddle Bow (13) RE: Tech: Restringing/Rehairing a Fiddle Bow 24 Dec 05

Amen to all the above. When I first started rehairing bows I was told that I should consider the first 50 or so as "practice", and indeed, I probably lost money on at least the first 20 or so, considering the number I had to redo. The ability to make new wedges is VERY important, and disassembling the bow in the first place is often a challenge. To this day, I try to avoid taking on expensive bows, because I just don't get enough rehairs in my area to get really good at it.
