After many hours of practice, a hot sultry day, a great performance you may experience perspiration with your violin playing. This is not uncommon. It is very normal. There are ways to protect your violin and bows from this natural phenomenon. To protect your chin rest you can cover it with mole skin. This won't harm your chin rest and you and the chin rest will stay dry. This is also very good to use for beginners who find the chin rest to be uncomfortable and it is also good for those that are allergic to the nickle in the chin rest. The mole skin can be cut to size so it will fit any chin rest perfectly. Leather bow grips are put on the stick of the bow to protect the wood from perspiration. This is done by the person who rehairs your bow. Enjoy the video and Happy Violin Care:)
