  • How often should my violin bow/ viola bow/ cello bow be re-haired?

    The horse hair from the bow drops off with practice, due to the strength and friction created when you draw the bow across the strings. Typically, you should rehair your bow every 6 months to a year. This depends on how frequent your practice and how much force you exert on your violin or cello bow. Aside from that, even if the horse tail hair does not significantly thin out on your violin, viola or cello bow, a lot of rosin has accumulated on the batch of horse hair and add 5 to 6 grams of weight to your bow. You should therefore rehair your bow accordingly.

  • Can a broken violin or cello be fixed?
