Although the state of an instrument depends on a musician's care to a major extent, other problems beyond the player's control can happen at any time.

One of the most common causes of trouble is humidity and/or atmospheric changes. It is well known that timber is hygroscopic, i.e. can absorb moisture. Because of this reason wooden parts expand in humid environment and shrink or crack in dry conditions .

Sudden humidity changes can cause various problems to the instrument, and they are impossible to avoid. When such a problem has occurred, the wisest solution is to deliver the instrument to a violin maker as soon as possible.

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.
