Articles » Care of a Stringed Instrument

A shiny new stringed instrument or a well maintained old one both require careful looking after if they are to last and keep their value. There are many instruments around now which have survived two or three centuries or longer and which work as well as the day they were made. In fact they may work better because members of the violin family often improve with use and with age.

Always remember that stringed instruments and their bows are easily broken.
