a fiddle issue: bowhairs
i was just reacquainting myself with ‘miss monaghan’ over the dregs of my morning coffee and wondering how it is that some very fine players seem to destroy their bowhairs, while i can go for months without breaking a single one. am i just not trying hard enough? i mean, i haven’t rehaired my bows for over three years (and i think they need it), but they just keep on going. if you recall doug kershaw, he was a master of the busted hairs. what’s the secret?
