Thread Name: Sometimes goes limp (bow hair)
Subject: RE: Sometimes goes limp
Well, kat, I have had it happen "out here". I try to carry 2 bows, that helps a little. Usually I have this problem when I'm playing outside after dark. Bonfires help, just (carefully!!) bake the bow a few minutes by moving it back and forth in front of the fire. Hubby used to have a non tuneable bodhran that had this problem a lot. bought him a little electric hair dryer and now I carry it in my gig bag. Only works if you have acess to electricity.
