Care and Maintenance of your Instrument
- Always put the instrument back in its case/bag when you are finished playing with it.
- Place the instrument and case in a safe location free from clutter and away from small children.
- Never expose the instrument to extreme heat or cold. Do not leave instrument in the car.
- Do not place anything heavy on the case/bag or on the instrument.
- Carefully polish away finger prints and rosin dust with a soft, non abrasive cloth.
- Do not touch the bow hair with your fingers. Do not use the bow as sword.
- Rosin the bow sparingly, a few times a week or when necessary.
- Children must be supervised by a responsible or experienced adult.
- Always loosen the bow hair before putting it away and never over- tighten the bow.
- Do not store in the case any shoulder rests, sheet music, or large objects that may cause damage to the instrument in any way. Always use the shoulder rest bag provided to store your shoulder rest.
- Always have an experienced, responsible adult tune the instrument until the student has learned how to do it correctly.
- Always bring the instrument in for service should the bridge bend, become misaligned, or break.
- It is always best to have Charles W. Liu and his staffs provide service to your instrument when it is needed. This includes: replacing strings, carving bridges, bow re-hair, re-gluing parts, re-fitting parts, sound post adjustments, repair cracks or dents, and polishing.
