Home > Set Up & Tuned

When our violins (and most other violins) arrive from the factory, they are not ready to play.

So, we prep the violin:

  • tighten the pegs
  • rewind the strings to hold the pegs tighter
  • notch the bridge for the strings to rest in
  • filed the bridge feet for more contact with the body (which is important for a full sound)
  • set the bridge in the right place
  • do the initial rosining of the bow
  • tune the violin
