I was unsure where to put this, just move it if it doesn't fit here.
So I was thinking about violin hangers. Nice way to store the violin and its also decorative. But I got some sort of worries about them. Are violin hangers safe? The violin won't fall down unless someone bump into the violin or the wall, right?

Hi Gry Hege, No I don't have special hangers for bows. I use two for my regular practice, alternating between them during a practice session. They hang on my cheap collapsible music stand that has a wire that can be extended out to the side (for holding pages down normally). The few other bows I have either stand upright in a corner or stay in the violin cases. I'm not a bow collector like I could be accused of being for violins.
I used to keep my violins in their cases, and I liked to have a complete outfit ready to open the case and be playable without hunting for something, so I have a shoulder rest for each one. Also the same shoulder rest doesn't fit all the violins without readjusting; some take a wider or narrow adjustment of the rest.
That is a SWEET collection there Steve. Makes it easy to grab one and get playing. I agree with scotty. I have a few guitars > they are always out of their case ready to play same with my viddle > Having it ready to go and not have to get it out of the case,etc might seem somewhat trivial but it does make practicing more consistent.
I've a other question. Sorry if I'm bothering you. Do you have anything on the backside of the violins to protect them and the wall?
Hi-- No, nothing on the back side between violin and wall. They don't move, hanging there, and it doesn't bother me.
