Well, my violin was recently repaired for cracks but they put a new bridge on and may have done other things I do not know of.
I have also had my strings changed to Corelli Crystal with a Golden spiral E for a brighter sound as old dominants were sounding gritty, dull and raspy on my violin. I think I have also tried a mixture of Helicore with the Dominants during my high school years (with very little string knowledge at the time).
The point - Recently my fingertips have been getting shredded from playing and practising. It's not like I don't practise very often and I've recently been playing lots of youth theatre shows with around 5 hours of playing a day.
I'm wondering if there is maybe something about the Corelli Crystal strings or perhaps the set up of my violin??
If the strings, any suggestions on a new string to try out?
(also I am a student so value for money suggestions would be appreciated!)
