Châtaigne (or chestnut in french) is selected from healthy brown tails. It is thick and strong similar to our Bassist Black Bowhair. Châtaigne is washed and dressed to the same standards as our Platinum Live series hair. The strength and color quality is becoming increasingly popular amongst players today.

I've ordered this hair twice. It's one of the most elastic thicker hairs I've used. It holds up to rock, heavy fiddling, bass bows. My heaviest rock and roll violinist and heaviest fiddler played almost a month before breaking their first hairs (instead of a week).
Only negatives I can state are that it's not white, which some object to, and it does need some final sorting, which I do to all qualities of hair I use.
