Regis Posted January 9, 2004 Report Share Posted January 9, 2004 In learning to restore/rehair bows, I'm seeing a difference between ferrule and tip widths. This puzzels me because I don't know how to adjust the amount of hair to fit correctly. Should I be concerned about filling the width of the ferrule or tip plug? All the literature I've seen says about(?) 150-200 hairs. It seems easy to "overload" the tip. What really determines the amount of hair? There is only a little difference in ferrules but, a lot of difference in tip plugs. I have to believe any significant concentration of hair approaching the tip makes a difference to the player. Help or clarification appreciated. Regis Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
