Luthiers in Texas (Bryan/College Station)
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.
I don’t know about College Station; you might need to go to Austin, Houston, or San Antonio. All three of the latter cities have much larger string playing communities.
They’re all about the same distance from here. Which would you suggest?
I’d go to Houston; find out who it is the Rice students and faculty use.
I like Sandro Cocco in Austin. Excellent rehairs and repairs. Reasonable prices. He does good adjustments and actually plays the violin.
