How often should I restring my instrument?

Guitar strings typically have 8 hours of playing time before they should be changed. If you play your guitar regularly, you should not go more than 3 months before changing strings. If you don’t play your guitar regularly, you can go up to 6 months. Old strings can damage your guitar.

Do I need to bring an instrument?

Should I be humidifying my instrument?

Keep a humidity gauge in the room where you store your instruments Most wood instruments are manufactured at around 40-50% humidity. During a Sault summer, it may not be necessary to run a humidifier. But during the winter, you will damage your instrument if you do not keep the moisture up.

How do I rent an instrument?

If you are taking guitar, violin, or bass we offer a rental program for a total of 6 weeks only to Case’s Music students at a cost of $15.00/week plus HST. Talk to us about renting your instrument.

How often should I clean my horn?

Wind instruments are a breeding ground for bacteria and fungus. If you have a brass instrument, you can clean with Herco Spitballs after playing, and have a repair shop flush your horn once a year. Swab your woodwind instrument with a pad-guard and let it dry in the open air every time you play, and have it flushed every other year.
