I stumbled across Coruss hair whilst investigating creative ways to refurbish some of the bows I hadn’t been using. I use D’Addario Helicore Octave Strings on one of my instruments, strings that require a slightly different approach to playing, as they’re thicker with medium tension. The combination of viola bow, Coruss hair and Andrea cello rosin turned out to be the ideal solution. Coruss hair enables loud and strident playing. The attack is quicker and the tone much richer. On the lower strings, Coruss cuts out unwanted overtones. Overall, I was surprised by the dynamism of Coruss hair and most delighted by the colour range. Recording in Penzance I was able to ship my bows using poster tubes. Communication with Cécile was a delight! If I lived near Cardiff, I’d be a regular.
