Bow rehairing service
I have been rehairing bows for some 19 years and have built up an impressive clientele. I provide a full professional service using only natural, white unbleached hair, although coarse black hair is available for double bass bows. As part of the rehair I also remove all rosin deposits from the stick and thoroughly clean all metal work.
A Violin bow rehair costs £30. Please contact me for the costs of repairing bows for other instruments.
I will normally rehair your bow within a couple of days of receipt but ask that you first contact me for my availability.

Postal Bow Rehair
Postal Bow Rehair
Postal bow rehair is an increasingly popular way for customers to get their bow to me.
Please contact me first to check my availability before posting your bow to me. I will give you a date when I will return your bow to you.
Pack your bow into a tube for posting (available from the PO or DIY stores), paying careful attention to the tip of the bow.
Enclose payment of £35, cheques to be made payable to Robert Bray, and include the address to which you would like the bow returned. £35 includes the rehair and first class return postage.
Some comments from recent customers below:
I was very impressed with Rob's postal bow rehair service
- the bow was returned very promptly, the quality of the hair is excellent
and it has a superbly even tension. I will use him again and have no
reservations recommending his work to any level of player!

“Brill, looking forward to using it. Thanks for your fast, careful and efficient service. Will definitely use you again.”
Alan Titherington (south east London)
“Since being recommended to me as someone in SE London who did a good job at rehairing bows, I've not used anyone else. The quality of the hair is fantastic, and the job is done so well that I only generally have to return every year or so at the most, which, for the price, is great value. A far better finished product than has been experienced from any of the shops in town, and it's always good to see that the stick's been cleaned too!”
“Fantastic service and quality and can meet any time deadlines that you may have.”
