July 12, 2013 at 2:02 PMQuestion: "Hi guys.
If you loosen your bow, should you also loosen the strings of your violin?
Please don't untune your violin. It is better for your instrument, for your strings and save you a lot of work!
What I forgot to mention in this video...
The lifetime of strings will be longer if you take care that the tension on the strings doesn't change too much. Change of tension will ruin your strings. Keep your violin tuned!
