Why Does My Violin Keep Getting Out of Tune?

In order to keep violins in tune, we usually recommend students to purchase a small bottle of peg drops. They usually cost between $5-10 and will help keep your violin in tune. From our experience, peg drops are especially needed for new violins since the wood needs to 'settle'.

1) Apply peg drops to where the peg touches the violin scroll. For a violin, there are a total of 8 places where the peg and scroll touch.
