Violin Care Tips

Learn to correctly care for your fiddle to protect your investment and ensure your new instrument stays in top condition for longer.


  • When not playing your fiddle, always store it in its hard case with the lid fastened.
  • Remember to remove your shoulder rest before storing your instrument.


  • Like most musical instruments, fiddles hate extremes of temperature and humidity.
  • Extremes of temperature or extreme fluctuations of temperature, may cause the wood to warp, affecting your tuning pegs and the intonation of the strings.


  • Humidity must also be kept constant (not too high, not too low).
  • If you live in a very dry climate or somewhere with long, dry Winters, you might want to consider investing in a humidifier.

Extra Care

  • Hold the fiddle at the neck, not at the body. Oils in our hands and fingers can damage the finish of the wood.
  • Wipe your fiddle down with a dry, microfibre cloth after playing. This will help to prevent a build up of rosin and remove any oils from the body.
  • Check the bridge placement before and after tuning.
  • Bring your fiddle to a professional luthier to be cleaned. Never try to clean it yourself using water or cleaning products.

Good to Know:

  • 14 day money back guarantee from the day you receive the fiddle. See our Shipping & Returns Policy.
  • 1 year warranty - all our new fiddles offer a one year guarantee for parts and service.
  • Free backup service for one year.
  • If purchased before 12pm (Monday-Friday), we ship it the same business day.
  • Priority Shipping Worldwide.
  • Option for FedEx 4-6 day shipping (select at checkout)
