Select Mongolian Black & Chestnut Brown Horse Hair for Violin, Cello & Bass (1 Pound Bundles)

Our Select Mongolian hair is our highest grade of bow hair. Bowworks has been offering this high grade stock for many years and it has earned a valid reputation in the trade as being the finest hair available. We have established a solid following of this quality hair.

The supplier of our Select Mongolian hair operates a small shop in China that focuses on this particular trade - that of providing high quality bow hair. After carefully selecting horse hair from Mongolian ranchers his skilled workers carefully wash and clean the hair with no bleach. The artisans in his shop then sort the hair strand by strand to select out the finest grade of hair for this topmost grade. The washing, cleaning and sorting process is extensive and thorough with several stages in each of these operations. Quality bow hair can best be found from a shop one has learned to trust over decades of purchasing.

Our black hair is also Select Mongolian grade. The low price of the black is not a factor of its quality but rather black horse hair is more commonly seen in nature and so the price is low because it is readily available. Black hair is sought after for Bass and some for Violin and Cello.

Our Select Mongolian hair seen on this page has earned a valid reputation in the trade as being the best. This grade of fine bow hair is highly sought after by bow makers and restorers for their best work and most valuable bows.

Each bundle contains 1 pound of hair. We ship promptly via Priority Mail from our Dover, Ohio shop and we charge $ 7 per order for shipping regardless of order size.
