Every classical musician who plays a stringed instrument has awakened from much the same nightmare:they open their violin or cello case to take out their precious instrument,only to find it smashed to bits.or they inagine themselves getting out of bed in the middle of the night and stepping on their expensive Stradivarius with a sickening crunch.these bad dreams find their counterpart in the less catastrophic accidents that befall stringed instruments in real life.violin strings break all the time in the heat of performance,and soloists usually are able to have them replaced in short order.but what does a soloist do when his or her precious strad or guarnerius sustains a more serious injury far from home?
