It is time that I get my bow rehaired, and a question has come up in my mind. It will cost me $50 for a rehairing, and if I were able to do it myself it would save money over time, covering the costs of future rehairs. I know that rehairing is, by no means, simple, and it takes some professional training in order to avoid the risk of damaging the bow and hairing it properly.
My question is, how much training does it take to get to a level where I can perform the rehairing as well as a skilled luthier, and what does the training involve (can I learn from a book, etc.)
Thanks in advance.
