Care Instructions

Caring for your violin will extend its lifespan. Wipe the rosin off the violin, fingerboard, and strings with a soft, dry cloth after each use.

Wood instruments are sensitive to temperature and humidity extremes. In dry climates and seasons, we recommend getting a room or case humidifier. The ideal humidity is 40-60%. Below that, the glue and wood can become brittle wrestling in open seams or cracks. Never leave your instrument in a car or outdoors.

Lifetime Structural Warranty

Holstein Traditional instruments come with a lifetime structural warranty with free lifetime adjustments.
