Cleaning Your Violin: Dos and Don'ts for Proper Maintenance

london violin repairs

As a delicate and expensive musical instrument, cleaning a violin requires careful attention and a gentle touch. A violin can accumulate dust, rosin residue, and oil from the player's hands over time, which can affect the sound quality and the instrument's overall appearance. Properly cleaning a violin can help extend its lifespan and maintain its value.

Here are some steps to follow when cleaning a violin:

  1. Clean around the chinrest and tailpiece: When cleaning a violin, it's important to be careful not to remove any parts or accessories from the instrument. Use a soft cloth or a small brush to clean around the chinrest and tailpiece, being careful not to disturb them.
  2. Clean the fingerboard: The fingerboard is the part of the violin where the strings are pressed down to produce notes. Use a soft cloth or a toothbrush to gently remove any dirt or rosin residue from the fingerboard.
  3. Clean the body: Use a soft, dry cloth to wipe the body of the violin. If there are stubborn spots or marks, use a slightly damp cloth. Be sure to avoid getting water or cleaning solution on the strings or any other parts of the instrument.
  4. Seek professional help for more extensive cleaning: In some cases, a violin may require more extensive cleaning or repair work than can be done at home. In these cases, it's best to seek out the services of a professional cleaning service such as MyLuthier. The experts at MyLuthier specialize in the maintenance and repair of violins, and they have the experience and knowledge needed to properly clean and care for your instrument. They can also identify any issues that may require repair or restoration work, helping to keep your violin in excellent condition for years to come.
  5. Reassemble the violin: Once you have finished cleaning the instrument, make sure that all parts and accessories are properly secured and in their correct positions.

What our players say

I am absolutely delighted with my new violin and with the help that Ariel at MyLuthier gave me in finding it.

I thought I would never find a modern instrument that would compare to my Andrea Guarneri, but Ariel and Pedro had just such a violin! I love playing on it, and I know it will continue to develop.

Amyn Merchant
Leader of Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

I bought a beautiful Fiorella Anelli violin from MyLuthier in May 2021. The whole experience was excellent (...) They gave me the space to make my own decisions, did not push a particular instrument, and there was no pressure to buy.

My gold mounted cello bow by Emilio Slaviero plays beautifully and was sold to me by MyLuthier at a keen price. I use the bow for most of my professional work here in London.

Justin Pearson
Managing Director of the National Symphony Orchestra of Great Britain

I cannot overstate what a pleasure it was to work with Ariel Lang in buying my violin!  From the moment I accessed the MyLuthier website, he worked with me online and through video streaming to help me choose the absolute perfect instrument to meet my needs.
