October Web Focus: Instrument Care

Stringed instruments can last centuries—but tend to have better odds of doing so if properly cared for. Clearly, if you’ve made the investment in a quality instrument, you want to maintain it. But perhaps you’re not entirely sure how or have a few questions. Not to worry: Strings is here for you.

This month, we’ll be posting articles that will help you handle the most common instrument-care questions and concerns, from basic care to what to do about wolf tones. The good new is that, with just a little conscientious attention, you can insure your instrument’s good health and longevity.
