I was just wondering, as my violin had most of the top varnish removed some years ago, is there something specific I should be using to not only keep it clean but to protect the wood? I've heard that just some standard wood polish will work and will help keep it from cracking but I wanted to make sure there isn't some other trade secret I don't know about. Considering its age, my violin is in excellent condition and I'd really like to make sure I'm taking care of it as best possible.
As always, thanks for the advice!
"I know a girl who cries when she practices violin because each note sounds so pure it just cuts into her, and then the melody comes pouring out her eyes. Now, to me, everything else just sounds like a lie."
My Vi guys recommended GVC premium polish and varnish cleaner for my Vi. safely removes dirt, grime and rosin. hmmm grime and rosin? who the heck gets grime on their violin? ha ha. Maybe the name of my first album - grimey vi!
anyways, dunno about the wood that isnt varnished so wouldnt want to speculate on anything.
