We rehaired a bow (valued around 800) at our local Bow Maker.
The same bow previously had been chosen as it matched the cello wonderfully but its hair was thin so we thought the sound will only improve if we rehair. As a first step the Bow Maker reset the existing thin hair on the bow (until he would be able to rehair it) and that improved the sound. When the rehairing took place
we were totally disappointed.
The nice bow was now making a horrible "fuzzy" sound (on the same cello).
We suspect that the Bow Maker used low quality hair thinking we
were not going to be able to tell ? (We can... even though we are
do not know about bow hair which he understood...)
Is there a reason which we cannot think about that this has happened - hopefully a more innocent reason than the one
