  1. When I get within about 9-12” from the tip the bow makes a series of shallow bounces/wobbles that give the sound a kind of chatter to it. It’s in the same spot every time and has been for the other people who tried the bow out. I’ll have it rehaired and see if that makes a difference.
  2. Can a bad batch of hair do that? I want to go back to the luthier with some knowledge under my belt. I actually know a little about rehairing already but I couldn’t find anything about a problem like this. This is the first time I’ve used this luthier and he seems competent.

  4. I am trying to find history and photographs etc. of the violin making in Dresden, Germany prior to world war 1.

I believe another hang up might be the alphabet change. It’s quite possible there is isn’t much but can anyone direct me towards a source that would help. Thank you, Grace E.
