Good info, I especially like the graphite trick. The volume is a bit low though.

Very good advice by Mr. Borman. I always use pencil graphite on the grooves of the nut and bridge. I'm surprised at how many violinists let their bridges get warped by simply not keeping them at the correct angle. Lots of careless people!
