Concert details here.

Replaced passione violin A string with new.

Worn through entirely

It’s been a while since the violin was looked at and I decided to take it to my friendly violin shop in Bushey called Thwaites, the fingerboard was in need of shooting (smoothing off the grooves that the strings leave in it) and the bridge, which was set up for my previous choice of strings (oliv or gut), needed to be lowered for my current choices which invariably are pirastro’s passione, which I’ve been enjoying a great deal. (synthetic gut, with a wide variety of windings, very nice indeed)

The service in the shop is fantastic and I was really impressed by the quality of the finish that they achieved, tiny things which I hadn’t mentioned were tidied and sorted and they are very reasonably priced!

I’ll add more photos of the new set up when I get the chance…
