Do I have to look after the bow hair?
The interplay between musician, instrument, string, bow and rosin is a sensitive matter, so taking care of your bow and bow hair is an essential part of your practice. Rosin sticks to the bow hair. This can lead to individual bow hairs sticking to other bow hairs and intensifying the bow noise as a result. For this reason, we recommend carefully brushing the bow hair using a soft toothbrush approximately once a week.
