What are the symptoms of needing a re-hair?
Or how often do you get a re-hair?
Hair falling out and/or mostly missing is a big one.
I find that as hair wears out it gets harder and harder to get a clean start on the note -- in my case it gets easy to squawk instead of getting a clean start on the note. Kinda like a tenor player with a bad reed.
I would say that every three or four months of heavy use you might want to consider hair.
It's been a year since I bought my bow...maby it's about time!
It probably depends on how much you play, but I find after six months or so it starts going down hill if I'm playing a lot every day. If there's some doubt, I'd say go ahead and do it. After a year, it almost definately needs it; especially if you didn't have it rehaired when you bought it.
