Basic instrument maintenance

Definitely the most important way to achieve minimum violin maintenance problems is to play a correctly made instrument. The best examples of them represent well - preserved old Italian violin family instruments.

Although the state of an instrument depends mostly on a musician's care, there can be other unforeseen problems.

One of the most widespread problems for an instrument is humidity and/or atmospheric changes. It is well known that timber is hygroscopic, i.e. can absorb moisture. Because of this wooden parts can expand or shrink depending on humidity changes.

Sudden humidity changes can cause various problems to the instrument, and they are hardly possible to avoid. And if such a problem has occurred, the wisest solution is to deliver the instrument to a violin maker with no any delay.

Some other aspects of violin maintenance are working with cracks, bridge, fingerboard, pegs, cleaning ... Each of these operations can help in avoiding more serious problems, when performed in time.

And if any of these problems remain neglected, the instrument may require more serious repair or even restoration

At last I have my ideal violin. I turned down 14 instruments which came from all around the country, including an original cremonese violin, which I just couldn't convince myself to like. However I had no second thoughts about my new violin, made by Czes and Birute Kul, and instantly knew this was the one. The violin has very clean articulation and a sweet tone, also
projecting well. I have had many compliments about it. A lot of careful workmanship has obviously gone into the violin, which is very elegant and distinctive in looks. Before you look anywhere else, I strongly recomend Czes and Birute. It could save a lot of trouble, time and money.
