15 Year Warranty
All Müsing bows are completely made in Germany with utmost care by highly skilled craftsmen, using only the most durable and reliable materials. That is why we can offer a 15 year warranty on the stick. This warranty is not limited to the initial owner, but transfers to any future owner and user. The frog is covered by a 2 year warranty.
The hair, winding, thumb leather, screw and eyelet are excluded from any warranty as they are subject to normal wear and tear.
In case you experience a quality issue with your Müsing bow, please turn to the original seller. Should that not be possible, please contact us directly.
Cleaning the Stick
To prevent rosin buildup on the stick, simply wipe it with a soft cloth regularly after playing. In case there is some build up that is hard to remove we recommend that you spread a few drops of oil on a cloth and gently clean the stick. You can either remove the light oil film with a clean cloth or leave it on the stick. This will prevent rosin buildup and make it more easy to wipe off.
Cleaning the Hair
When the bow loses its grip, it may be time to clean the hair. Rehairing the bow is only necessary when about 5-10% of the hair is lost or the hairs are stretched out. Rosin is a gluey substance that not only provides the grip between the hair and the string, but also collects all kinds of dirt and thus loses its original function.
To clean the hair we recommend to use pure alcohol spread on a paper towel. Rub the hair with this and repeat the process until almost all rosin is removed and the hair looks clean. Let the hair dry and then comb it carefully. The hair is as good as new. Now you can add just a little fresh rosin and you are ready to play.
Rehairing your Müsing Bow
To check the hair thickness we recommend to use the Arcus hairgauge.
When 5-10% or more of the hair is broken or the ribbon is so stretched out that the bow can't be brought to playing tension, the bow should be rehaired. It is done exactly like on traditional bows, only that more hair is used, matching the higher resiliency of the stick. For our violin bows we recommend 7 mm², for viola bows 9 mm² and for cello bows 12 mm².
