    Can someone tell me what a reasonable price for a bow re-hair should cost.  Thanks.

    I’ve paid fifty bucks quite a bit lately, but several times only $15.00 – 35.00. I think $50.00 – 75.00 should be about right anymore. Most bow hair is around $10.00 or under and it rarely takes more than 1/2 hour’s work even counting cutting new wedges.

    I’ve done my own many, many times but close up vision has become a problem and I shake too much lately. 🙂

    Thanks for letting me know the approximate cost, Fred.  A music store gave me an estimate of around $200. When I questioned such a large amount they told me that they would have to ship it off to a luthier almost 150 miles away and then wait for its return. Of course, I wasn’t going to pay that much money. $50 — 75 sounds like a good price. I’ll look into it. Thanks again, Fred.
