You can take two instruments cut from the same piece of wood, moulded by the same crafts men, produced and stored in the same climatic conditions and yet they sound completely different. It is the mystery that all musicians become all to familiar with at one point or another.
With that in mind we thought it might be a good time to stress the importance of caring for your instrument. Below are some tips and hints for all of our students on how to properly care for your instrument. After all how you treat your instrument will directly reflect the tone and timbre it produces.
* Make sure you get your instrument serviced regularly. This includes a re-string. For light players twice a year is fine. For moderate to Frequent players once every three months is needed to maintain your precious axe.
* Avoid exposing your instrument to extreme changes in temperature such as which may occur in a car or under an air conditioner.
* Protect your instrument by placing it is a case.
* Get strap locks installed if you are going to be standing with a strap. Too many times we see a guitar drop to the floor because the strap came off.
* Book in with Bryan to have your Guitar or Bass serviced for the new year.
* Place your instrument on an internal wall out of direct sunlight.
* Regularly tune your instrument. For regular players you should tune your piano about once a year. You should tunes your piano once the weather for the season has set it. If you tune your instrument during drastic changes of weather then it will not hold it’s tune very well. More frequent players need to have their piano tuned twice a year.
