My wife bought me a Fiddlerman violin for my birthday in January. I haven't played in 18 years, and have been wanting to get back into playing. Today, while practicing I noticed the D string has a burr in the portion of the string contained in the peg box. Is there a need to be concerned/ is it safe to continue to play or do I need to replace the string?
Is it on the part of the string wrapped around the peg, if it is could it not be just the end of the string itself?
I actually changed my strings last time because the A string had started to unwind,, were you bow it😄 I am a bit tight were money is concerned.
Worst that can happen is it could snap, if you are concerned just change it they are only a few quid, but I wouldnt worry about it to be honest.
I would contact Fiddlershop. Depending of it was purchased used, or whatever, they may be able to help you out with the string itself, if there is a problem. But, for sure, they would know if there is a problem. Give them a call or email, or on their site with a chat. Have the place purchased, new or used, etc information. They are excellent with customer service and their products.
Welcome to the forum, and I hope you take advantage of all the information and encouragement on the forum and all of Fiddlerman's links above the forum, in the menu bar.
