    Instrument and Accessories

    Violin and Viola – Rosin, Cleaning Cloth, and Shoulder Rest (not foam) – recommend Everest or Kum, Finger Tape, Extra set of strings for your instrument. (You’ll keep them in your case). Strings break, it’s no big deal – this level I prefer they have Prelude strings – can get by with Red Label (and other cheaper brands) but they will sound tinny and will break more often.

    Cello and Double Bass – Rosin, Cleaning Cloth, Chair anchor, Finger Tape, Extra set of strings for your instrument. (You’ll keep them in your case). Strings break, it’s no big deal – this level I prefer they have Prelude strings – can get by with Red Label (and other cheaper brands) but they will sound tinny and will break more often.

    Double Bass – Cleaning Cloth, Bass Rosin (specific for bass, I recommend Pop’s brand). You do not need an extra set of strings for your instrument but if one breaks you are responsible for purchasing it ASAP. You need to talk to Mrs. Skolrud for the brand you need to purchase.
