Publisher's Weekly Review

For readers who play the violin, whether in the school orchestra, the subway station or the symphony, good instrument care is essential. The Violin Owner's Manual is a complete guide to the selection, repair, preservation and protection of the instrument, regardless of type or value. Written under the guidance of the editors of Strings magazine, by a team of violin makers, violin repair specialists, restorers, bow makers, bow dealers and musicians, the book is lucid, and helpfully illustrated by b&w photos and drawings. Among other advice, readers are told how to select a bow and a violin case, guard against theft, install and care for strings, find the shoulder rest that is most comfortable and how and when to sell your instrument. Should be welcomed by violinists at any level of expertise, as well as instructors and dealers. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
