Here is an interesting topic to discuss: Does loaning a violin or a bow to a friend for a performance or longer somehow alter the sound that the instrument or bow makes upon return? I have an instructor that claims that the bow that she loaned to a student for a performance sounds different to her upon it's return. The student did not rosin it while it was in her possession. An friend of mine who makes violins claims the same - his violin sounds different to him upon return if he loans it to anyone to play.
