Q&A: Hot, dry weather = Bad for stringed instruments?

Question by alejandro.devincenzi: Hot, dry weather = Bad for stringed instruments?
Well I live in San Diego and we’ve been getting a lot of hot dry weather like we usually do but it just gets hotter every year (literally). I’ve just bought a beautiful Violin for 00 with a sound and tone worthy of a 00 instrument (both in my opinion and the opinion of my friends and teachers), and a pretty good bow for about 0. I’d like to think that when I buy new instruments, im making an investment both financially and for the happiness of my musician life, what are some good steps to keep my Violin safe from extreme fluctuations and temperatures of weather? Especially dryness, I go to a summer music camp for orchestral musicians up in the mountains and next year will be the first with my new Violin and it is EXTREMELY dry up there, what are some good steps to ensure the well being of my Violin and bow? How can I maintain the great tone and sound that it still has now thats its new, for the longest time possible? Also, what are some good techniques to keep my wonderful strings in good-as-new condition? all answers are extremely appreciated :D

Best answer:

Answer by Kab
Wipe your strings free of rosin after playing. Wipe the entire instrument with a violin cleaning cloth.
wipe the rosin off the bow stick after playing.
Learn to rosin you bow so that you have enough for a good sound, but not enough to create a cloud, when the stick is slapped across your palm.
Strings will have to be replaced every 12 – 24 months.
Go to the violin shop for the cloth and cleaners.
Get a hydrometer from the shop and have them explain how to use it, or buy a case with one built in.
Keep your violin in the case, when not in use.

Hurricanes!

Hurricanes!

Imagine a force that can toss boats around like toys, wash away bridges, and create waves as high as eighteen feet. With fierce winds and torrential rains, hurricanes can do all of these things. They can cause tremendous damage and even change the shape of a shoreline. For centuries people did not know when a hurricane was coming. But now we have new methods to predict when and where these storms will occur. Young readers will learn how hurricanes are formed, how they are named and classified, a
