I went to New York City and my bow was rehaired by Mr. Wylie. What an amazing job!! I sound like good now. I most definitely will go back to him.

Thank you, Mr. Wylie.

Rehairs of the highest order; one of the finest in New York. I have taken my bows to many other shops but have found Mr. Wylie's work to be the most consistent, and now use him exlclusively.

I don't know much about him, except he used to share a shop with a former customer of mine. Both of them are EXTREMELY picky about bow hair and frequently would send back what they didn't want or like. They were even fussy about Sowden's top of the line Golden string.

He's a bowmaker who makes period bows only, but he does first rate repairs and rehairs on modern bows. While I lived in New York I tried all the big name bow shops and Greg consistantly gave the best rehairs.
He does all the work himself; no apprentices.
