11 Reasons Why Your Instrument Might Be in Danger of Irreversible Damage 

And How To Prevent it Without Spending Time and Money on Regular Check Ups
As a violin maker with over 25 years of experience I frequently see fine instruments with damage that permanently devalues them yet which could be so easily (and cheaply) prevented. 

The truth is, musicians are usually not aware of all the points they should check in their instruments, and they do not show their instruments to violin makers for various reasons: 

🎻 Cost
🎻 Luck of trust
🎻 Busy schedules
🎻 Absence of violin maker in their vicinity
🎻 Unawareness 

I recommend showing your instrument to your violin maker at least once a year. If this is not possible, you can assess the condition of your instrument by yourself and prevent the development of irreversible and extremely costly damage to your instrument. Now you can do it online, right here.
