Luthiers in Texas (Bryan/College Station)

October 14, 2020, 5:21 PM · Can anyone point me to some luthiers near me? I just moved here and need a rehair badly. I haven’t had my bow rehaired since I got it 4 years ago and I’ve somewhat ruined the hairs by trying to clean them in denatured alcohol and it ended up leaving a hard patch of solidified rosin. I probably need my sound post and bridge adjusted as well.
