Incredihair rehair in UK?
« on: Nov 06, 2015, 06:59:18 PM »
Hi all! I'm wondering, does anyone know anyone in the UK who can rehair carbonfibre bows with incredihair?

Massively grateful if you could reply.

Happy weekend,
Gavin

John Carpenter used to do it but not sure if he still does. Contact him through http://www.johncarpenterviolins.co.uk/ or through his facebook page. He may still have it available.

Oh dear, I hadn't heard that. Only met him half a dozen times or so but always treated me like an old friend. A really helpful bloke and enthusiast about all things violin related as well as many other interests. Very sad, if it's correct.

It is correct Nick. I just checked on the site of the radio company he was involved with (Radio Tir Coed).
Sad indeed.

You've been working hard to wear out incredihair! I think you can order the incredihair from the US as a hank and probably take it to any bow rehairer - though they'll say "Ugh!" when they see the object. I think Glen Titmus does it  - http://www.glentitmus.co.uk. I know he'll put incredihair on an ordinary bow.
