Thread Name: Sometimes goes limp (bow hair)
Subject: RE: Sometimes goes limp
old fashioned nyckelharpa bows were
not made to have an adjusting screw
the tension was adjusted by holding
on to the bow hair with the hand or
thumb and holding tension by squeezing.
must have made the hand tired quickly
or made yoiu extra strong
