Hello,

I was wondering if anyone here has used the Anton Schubert violin cleaner/polish?

I am trying to work out the best way to safely remove rosin build up.

I never used to wipe off the rosin after I have played so it has built up and I can't get it off with just a cloth.

Any ideas??

Thanks,

Kiara

I was told to only use real lemon oil (not Pledge).  And yea, rosin will mess up your finish.  Sorry, I have no advice about the product you asked about.  

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Hi! I have 2 violins: O.J.Klier - on this one Anton Shuster works wonderful.

But it can affect some violin's varnishes, including my A.F.Kohr. So now i use this one for it:

Anyway, both remove all built ups perfectly.
