Violins and Violas Set Up & Tuned--Ready to Play

Most inexpensive violins bought online are not ready to play, so you have to pay to have that done.

I set up and do the first tuning before I ship to you so it's ready to go!

So, we prepare the violin for playing:

  • tighten the pegs
  • notch the bridge for the strings to rest in
  • sand the bridge down for the right string height
  • set the bridge in the right place
  • do the initial rosining of the bow
  • tune the violin
