Manhattan bow rehair recommendations?

September 22, 2005 at 11:39 PM · I recently moved to New York City, and I'm having a hard time figuring out where I should go to get a quality bow rehair. I know there are a lot of people/shops to choose from, so could someone help me pick out the good from the not-so-great? I would appreciate advice on violin or bow repairs as well.

I still send my bow to him for rehairs when I get the chance. Machold's was pretty good too but I don't know if the same bow person is there now.
