Asked Questions - Page 2
What if a string breaks? This rarely
happens, but extra strings are provided and the instruction book shows you how to change
one. The size string is commonly used on guitars or banjos and is available through us or
at most music stores.
How long will a bow last? Your bow is
haired with a durable synthetic fiber developed for violin bows and should last for many
years under normal use. We rehair bows for a nominal fee and new bows are inexpensive.
||What woods do you use? The warm dark wood
seen on the sides of our instrument is select Northern cherry, as is the bridge and bow.
Because of its superior tone quality we make our tops of quartersawn Sitka spruce, which
has been the soundboard of choice for centuries. Laminated rock maple holds the tuning
pegs securely, an idea we borrowed from piano construction.
