I am as brand new out-of-the-box as my fiddle, so please be patient with this dumb question
I unpacked my brand new fiddle and found that there are a few dangling bow hairs on the bow. That is to say, the hairs are attached on the tip end, but not on the frog end. Is it okay to clip these with some fine scissors and neaten things up on each end? They are random hairs, not a group together, so I don't see any visible gaps.
I guess that's the next question - if there are tiny gaps in the bow hairs will it affect the sound?
While I'm here - I want to thank Fiddler Man for this awesome site and the many invaluable lessons! And many thanks for your patience and (constructive) suggestions and answers to my questions!
