Bow Rehair & Restauration

Rehairing a bow is considered necessary maintenance. At CREMONA we know how important it is to be able to count on a perfect rehair every time. We believe in quality work and quality materials. We use only the finest unbleached horse hair from colder climates.   Bows can require other repairs as well such as straightening the stick, repairing the frog, and replacing the grip. And, fitting a new ivory, mammoth or silver face plate.
