Hi There, my name is Alex Bonesteel, I manage the Island Strings website and have remained active in Island strings ever since I was just a book one student. I grew up on the Island and currently live in Bayview. I’ve been playing violin and viola since I was 10 years old, and over years of playing music I’ve realized how important it is to have my bows rehaired regularly. It’s been a long standing inconvenience for me personally that there is no local source for professional bow rehairing and repair services on South Whidbey. Well after years of frustration, I’ve decided to solve this problem.
I’ve negotiated a deeply discounted rate with a professional bow rehairing and repair firm so that local Islanders can have their bows quickly and professionally rehaired and repaired with the utmost quality, value, and convenience possible. Give me a call at 360-632-2635 and I will pick up your bow or bows directly at your home or other location you choose. When your bow is finished I will deliver it directly to your door. The company that provides the bow services is well respected in the industry and guarantees all their work. I personally have been using their services for over 7 years now, and it’s because of this long standing relationship that I’ve been able to negotiate this arrangement. I collect bows on a weekly basis, deliver them for rehair or repair, pick them up, and return them to you. It’s that simple.
Standard Violin Bow Rehair: $45.00
Multiple Bow Rehair Discounted Rate: $40.00 per bow
