Oh, no! I broke a string! What should I do? Will this damage my instrument?

SHAR Answer:

No worries, it’s okay! This definitely happens now and then and it’s nothing to be too worried about. Unless all four strings broke at the same time (highly unlikely) and the bridge completely collapsed, it’s unlikely that there is any damage at all to your instrument. If it’s just simply one string that broke, then you’ll just need to purchase a new one and install it.

Unfortunately, broken strings cannot be repaired. They need to be replaced if they are broken. You can usually find them at a local violin shop. You can buy an individual string (only the A string, for example), if that's the one that's broken, or we also sell strings in a set of all four strings (E, A, D & G for violin and A,D,G & C for viola and cello). We sell a wide variety of brands of strings here at Shar--you can order them here online or over the phone. Our customer care representatives can help you place an order for new strings at 800.248.7427.

It's fairly uncommon for strings to just randomly snap. This is more likely to happen if the strings are older, worn out, or not in good condition. That’s why it’s a good idea to replace your strings periodically (their longevity will depend on how much you play) and keep your strings/instrument in proper condition. It’s also a good idea to purchase and keep an extra set of strings handy in your case, just in case a string breaks right before a lesson or performance and you need to replace it.
