Low temperature bad for violin?

January 9, 2006 at 05:22 PM · Hello and thanks for reading.

Can anyone tell me if there is a negative effect on violins in cold temperature even though the humidity is on the high side. I am temporarily forced to practice in an environment where the temperature in question is in the low 40 (or 5 degrees centigrade)....A good warm up could very well be in order!

Thanks,

Daniel

You may notice that the instrument sounds different though.
