Below you will find some care and cleaning guidelines for String Instruments:

  • Wiping down your instrument after you play with a soft clean cloth is usually sufficient. Wipe off rosin dust from the strings and fingerboard, and anywhere else it has accumulated. Wipe rosin from the bow stick, but not the hair

  • SPECIAL COVID-19 CONCERNS: We recommend that people avoid sharing their instruments. Wash your hands before handling your instrument. THERE IS NO WAY TO SAFELY SANITIZE YOUR INSTRUMENT AT HOME. 

  • NEVER USE ALCOHOL OR SOLVENT-BASED PRODUCTS! ALCOHOL, SOLVENT, AND HAND SANITIZER WILL DAMAGE THE VARNISH ON YOUR INSTRUMENT!

If you have any questions about cleaning your instrument, please bring it to our shop for professional assistance. We are not responsible for damage to any instrument based on these recommendations. Rental customers: Damage due to improper cleaning is not covered by our M&R policy. 

We thank you for your continued support and understanding.
