Violin and Viola players perform many bowing and finger movements against the strings which leave behind harmful debris. Bowing deposits rosin and finger movements deposit oils, skin, sweat, and other harmful substances. All of this debris weighs down the string thus dampening the sound. Furthermore, the finger deposits over time cause oxidation which inevitably destroys the strings. The String Cleaner quickly and easily removes these harmful deposits and in doing so, extends the life, strength, and tone of Violin strings.
