Top Players Trusts Bunkyo Gakki's Rehair

Rehair is the most familiar maintenance that customers experience. However, it has an aspects that there is a big differences in results depending on the technical level of workers. Bunkyo Gakki are committed to offer the highest quality of rehair service to every single process, which meets a strict requirements from a first-class players. Here We introduce three commitments of rehair, which Bunkyo Gakkis value.

TENSION AND BALANCE

 

Basically keeping a tension uniformly, we slightly add a difference in tension in order to realize more natural playability (there is no effect on stick).

 

When seeing hair from frog, violin / viola changes tension from left to right and cello / contrabass do from right to left. It is easy to say in terms of words, but it requires a high skill because of subtle senses such as how to comb the hair and bundle it.

LENGTH

 

Bunkyo Gakki work with a care in the length of hair so that these problems do not occur. Consider not only the balance of a bow itself but also the seasons and conditions of use, for example, slightly shorter for the high humidity season, slightly longer for the low season, etc. to derive the optimal total balance.

QUALITY


The tendency of sound also changes depending on the quality of bow hair.  Bunkyo Gakki are preparing three kinds of hair carefully selected from various birthplace and quality, Mongolia, Canada and Italy. In addition, we can offer a fine quality of rehair, by adding further selection by hand so that there are no variations, which realize a better feelings of play.

PLUG


It is necessary to have a skilled work due to an optimum shape of a plug that varies from bow to bow, We will make the best plug for your bow so as not to damage the head and frog, not to easily escape, not to hinder the next rehair. We don’t use an adhesives such as bonds basically because they have a marked negative effect on the health condition of a bow and subsequent rehair work.

FERRULE AND TIP

 

In addition to the plug described above, we won’t deform or damage a ferrule and tip, carefully judging a proper amount of hair and balance of tension, Bow hairs are adjusted to everything straight, so that twisting and bending do not occur on the stick. This minimizes the burden on the stick at the time of use.

DIALOGUE

Under our repair policy, we consider rehair as an opportunity for communication with customers, not mere maintenance work. Please let us have your request for your preference, focus on smoothness, emphasis on getting caught, balance emphasis etc. We work with image of the quality, quantity, and tension, asking for your desire for volume and tone, which will give you the best feeling of play.

 

With your continuous use of Bunkyo Gakki, the contents of the dialogue will be so deepen that we can make rehair makes you even more satisfied. Besides we check a condition of a bow generally and give you an advice and suggestion. We hope you can utilize our reharir serivice as a place for a health examinations of your bow.
