My sister wanted me to ask a question on here for her. She has had a problem with her violin strings rusting. Recently, she hasn't played much, but she has found that when she takes out her violin, the E-string is entirely rusted (the entire string all along the fingerboard) as is part of the D-String. The first time this happened, she replaced all the strings and it happened again. Her violin is stored in a room with other instruments, and none of the other violins have had this problem. ALso, it happened with the violin after it had been stored in two different cases. WHat could be causing this? I thought maybe making sure the strings had been wiped thouroughly after playing could help. ANy other suggestions?
