Do you guys know what good materials to use for bow hair are (for an instrument like a violin) ? Could you use commercial hair, or do you have to find a "homemade" substitute?
No commercial hair allowed, sadly. Unless they change the rules next year. So, you have two options: go get actual horsehair from a horse, or find a substitute. I wish you the best of luck with that. I have a feeling that you'll need it.

Haha I wasn't in sounds, but we placed third in it at Nats. Apparently we could've gotten first, but we answered a question wrong in knowledge... Idk whatever. But the guy that built our instruments went to the shop room in our school on weekends for the whole day, and worked after school till 11 on a lot of weekdays. Haha he's amazing. How'd you guys do in sounds? It seems like the hardest event!!!

yeah, the judge was asking us the questions and we were just standing there with this completely clueless look on our faces thinking, what in the world is this guy talking about, so we guessed the answers pretty randomly, and yeah.....

gosh, it would have been pretty funny from an outsiders point of view (was a bit depressing @ the time), he was looking at us like he was thinking, YOU are at NATIONALS?
