    I think it's time that I get my bow rehaired. Let's just say that I had it done when I first got it in 1981. (I know, I know)

    Any recommendations on where to take it in the Boston area? It's a french FC Pfretzchner.
     
  2. I would reccommend you send it out to Upton Bass, They recently did one of my Bows, and did a great job!

    I was thinking about that. They're about a 2 hr drive from me. Maybe I could make arrangements to bring it over in the morning, spend the day in the area, and pick it up later in the afternoon. I'm assuming that it doesn't take too long to do a rehair.

    I'd like to check out the new upton deluxe bags too.

    My finger tip has just about grown back from the last rehair I did, so I could be persuaded to rehair a bow. ;)
