Bow Rehairs and Repairs

Paul Ayres still does all the bow rehairing personally, using only the finest natural white Mongolian horsehair. Bow rehairs include a light clean and normally take two to three days. Express rehairs (two days or less) can be arranged and we will always try to fit in with our customers’ schedules.
