DARK Silver bass bow hair hank
Medium/Course texture DARK SILVER horse hair for double bass bow re-hair*
Q – Silver? Don’t you mean Salt & Pepper?
A – No. Silver and Salt & Pepper are VERY different. Salt & Pepper is a 50/50 mix of COARSE BLACK hair and FINE WHITE hair. True Salt & Pepper is mixed by hand and takes a lot of skill to be performed correctly and ensure an even ribbon. True Salt & Pepper is also at a premium due to the hair preparation. Please Call Us At +1 (860) 535-9399 if you would like to be quoted on true Salt & Pepper. Our DARK Silver bass bow hair hank is a natural hair color from a dapple grey horse. It is a medium/course Textured hair not unlike Salt & Pepper but at a fraction of the cost.
Upton Bass bow hair is pre-tied at the narrow end of the hair with strong nylon thread and sealed with cyanoacrylate for superior holding. The bass bow re-hair experts at Upton Bass will pre-tie your hank at the end intended for the tip of the bass bow. All bow hair has taper to it, and in our opinion and experience a better bow rehair is achieved with the thicker end of the bow hair in the frog.
Our hank of silver bass bow hair is ready to be inserted into the tip mortise of your bow (if you rehair frog to tip, our pre-tied plug will need to be cut in order to achieve the proper bend).
Our bass bow hair is bundled by VOLUME, not weight. Selling by weight is inaccurate and can leave you without enough hair to have a full and wide ribbon.
*This is an unfinished product that must be installed. Upton Bass offers you the same hair we use in our shop daily due to popular request, but we do not offer advice or instruction on how to re-hair your bow.
