In fact, caring for a violin is very simple - the violin is comfortable when it is convenient for a person.
Violin maintenance can prolong life of violin. As a rule, violin does not break, but most of damage to violin is caused by improper maintenance. The violin is a relatively delicate musical instrument and should not be placed near a stove, heating or in a damp place, not to mention direct sunlight, which can damage instrument. When strings are not used for a long time, strings should be loosened. Even if you use it every day, after a long time, you should regularly loosen strings so that instrument “rests”. boring and dark.
The violin must be kept clean to keep a good sound. After each use of instrument, use a soft cloth to wipe off rosin powder and dust from instrument's chords. If dirt has accumulated on piano board, you can gently wipe it with a cotton swab dipped in soapy water, and then wipe it with a dry, soft cloth. Another way is to wrap a piece of walnut pulp with a cloth to wipe off dirt, and effect is also good. But never wipe piano with alcohol or other chemicals that will remove paint.
If there is a lot of dust and rosin foam in belly of piano, you can pour a handful of washed and fried rice into belly of piano through f hole, then shake body of piano back and forth, left and right, up and down several times, and then put dust and rosin foam rice grains are poured out of sound hole. After you have practiced piano, place piano in piano case and close it. When you are standing straight, do not turn it over, piano head should be facing up. When laying horizontally, do not put it upside down, and cover of case should be facing up. The piano box cannot be pressurized, tuning pegs are affected by climate change, and strings move easily when dry, so you can apply an appropriate amount of rosin or chalk dust to shaft to make it stable. Does not roll when wet. Apply pencil lead or some toothpaste to smooth it out.
