How to Rehair a Violin Bow | Violin Lounge TV #237

June 15, 2016, 12:03 AM · Last week I've visited the Czech Republic to attend a 3 day workshop with the violin makers and bow makers who deliver instruments and bows for my violin shop in Holland. I learned a lot about adjustment of violins, what determines the sound, how to recognize good quality wood and a lot more.

During my visit with the bow makers, I've captured a bow maker rehairing a bow. I hope you find it just as interesting and meditative to watch it as I did:
