String Clean

A good String Clean can be done at any time of year!

All accessible parts of the non-wound strings can be rubbed down with a carborundum rubber. Of course, this doesn’t improve the sound, but it does reduce the collection of further rust and rust spots (which can form non-vibrating nodes that alter the harmonic picture of the string).

After this job, the sound board needs blowing out and carefully cleaning!
