Happy Halloween to all those who celebrate
Today’s #WednesdayWisdom was inspired by the poor gentleman who left his 300 year old violin on the train.
Our advice, other than not to leave it in the luggage rack, is to invest in a clip-on cut-proof strap (they’re often sold as theft-proof straps for travellers). Clip it to itself around the handle of your case then, whilst seated, loop the strap around your wrist. That way you can guarantee not to forget the instrument.
In addition, should you inadvertently leave your instrument somewhere, there are lots key locators cheaply available these days that sends a location to your smart phone. Many are small enough to be discretely placed in the case or, if you are careful, inside the lining. There are also discrete rfid chips that can be placed inside your instrument allowing the police to verify it is yours should they find it. Contact us for details.
Reminder: With the clocks going back last Sunday our Tuesday extended opening came to an end. Thank you to everyone who popped in to see us.
However, this does not mean that you can only visit us 9-5 Mon-Fri as we are still offering out of hours and weekend opening by appointment. Call us to make your appointment.
