Hello everyone. Hopefully I have a simple question. Currently I keep my violin in the case in between practices. But lately I haven't practiced in a while due to extreme work load. So is it OK to hang it on the wall on one of those violin hooks? Maybe I'm just being lazy, but I'm getting tired of pulling it out of the case every time and I'd actually like to see it hanging on the wall. I do have a humidifier in my room due to winter dryness with electric heat so I'm thinking this also might be better for the wood to be out in the open. I'm not worried about damage either I have a safe place to hang it. Thanks for any advice.

I'm no expert but I believe that it is OK, especially since you have the humidifier in the room. It's always a good idea to see the violin and be reminded that it exists. It can motivate you at the right time and get that much more work done on it.


The main time that I close my case is when I leave for a gig. At home I like to have the violin out and visible.

I'm like you Terryg. My work really cuts into my practice time I keep mine outran stand  so if I do have 15 to 30 min I can pick it up and play. Even if it is just going through scales or even one song at least you are hitting the strings.

Yes, this is a great way to stay motivated. If you put your fiddle away, you won't see it and can forget it.

Keep it up. thumbs-up
