  • We can provide additional service on your bow such as a new leather grip, winding, and tip plate if needed, for an additional charge. We also offer Zarelon synthetic bow hair for the same as Premium hair.
  • We charge an additional $20 service fee so that we may arrange for shipping an empty bow tube to you, shipping the package back to us, and then back to you.
  • Our turnaround time is approximately one week from shipping the bow tube to returning the completed bow. 
  • Need a loaner bow? We have you covered. We are happy to offer this for an extra $10, so we can arrange to have the loaner shipped back at the end of the process.
  • Need accessories or instrument service? We are offering 20% off all strings, accessories, and other items! We can ship small accessories along with the bow tube, and larger accessories may be shipped separately. We can also do the same process explained above, but with shipping a larger box to fit your violin or viola for service. Shipping fees may vary based on shipment weight and location.
  • If you are an educator, let us know. You also qualify for an additional 15% discount off of the cost of the rehair or repair services (shipping not included).
