OLD MASTER BOW HAIR CLEANER & CONDITIONER
Old Master Bow Hair Cleaner was specifically designed not to interfere with the bows sound and performance. It contains moisturizers and conditions keeping your bow hair supple. Unlike using rubbing alcohol, this product will not damage the bow hair, even with repeated use. Old Master Bow Hair Cleaner is also used when your bow is not responding properly because of rosin build up. And is perfect for seasonal rosin changes. Reduce wear on the bow, increase its’ longevity and reduce the need for frequent bow re-hairing by using Stravari’s Bow Hair Cleaner.
ORANGE STRING CLEANER & ROSIN REMOVER
Old Master Orange String Cleaner and Rosin Remover has been formulated to take advantage of the powerful cleaning action of d-limonene found in oranges, while reducing its finish-stripping properties. In order to do that, Stravari blends it with various non-toxic solvents. This way, their Orange String Cleaner cleans the instrument without damaging the instrument.
STRING CLEANER & ROSIN REMOVER – Original
Old Master String Cleaner and Rosin Remover is made of a non-toxic solvent that is safe on most all finishes. This product is more aggressive than cleaning with Violin Spit. The String Cleaner and Rosin Remover was formulated for the occasional removal of rosin build-up on bow sticks, instruments and strings. This formula is also extremely effective for removing dirt, oils and waxes from the surface of your instrument. Most of the rosin removers on the market are highly toxic and contain aromatic solvents along with carcinogenics. The Old Master String Cleaner and Rosin Remover however is completely safe on your instrument; while being tremendously effective for cleaning your instrument, bow and strings.
After cleaning your instrument with Old Master String Cleaner and Rosin Remover, you’ll need to apply a fresh coat of protective wax. The Old Master Wax or Old Master Polish (below), is the perfect product to seal the raw wood from dirt, moisture, rosin acidity and humidity changes.
MSRP $14.95 – 1 oz / $29.95 – 4 oz
PEG MAGIC – PEG COMPOUND
The Peg Magic Peg Compounds’ design is based on the Peg Magic formula. The Peg Compound stick is a revolutionary friction peg compound. It is a heavier product than the Peg Magic liquid (below). It provides the perfect balance of slip and grip to allow the pegs to hold firm and turn smoothly. Used properly Peg Magic will never “creak” like peg drops or get “gummy” like wax based peg dope. Apply sparingly.
Peg Magic is a revolutionary friction peg compound. It provides the perfect balance of slip and grip to allow the pegs to hold firm and turn smoothly. Our Magic Wand applicator allows for an accurate, controlled application. Used properly Peg Magic will never “creak” like peg drops or get “gummy” like wax based peg dope. Peg Magic is a natural compound made in part with a base of consumption safe grain alcohol. It does not contain wax and when applied, must be allowed to dry completely prior to reinserting the pegs. It may take up to a week or two for your pegs to fully settle (become less creaky). This usually applies only to a new or newly fit set of pegs. If you have more porous pegs, consider using a thin coat of Old Master Wax in conjunction with the Peg Magic. Apply sparingly.

OLD MASTER WAX
Old Master Wax is a natural paste wax that leaves a hard but flexible coating to protect even the most valuable instruments. Museums around the world use this wax to protect priceless artifacts made of wood, leather, metal and other valuable materials. Old Master Wax used on the fingerboard and the unvarnished back of an instrument’s neck properly seals the wood while leaving a great look and feel. Old Master Wax on the body of an instrument will provide long lasting protection from rosin and the elements. Old Master Wax applied properly will never build up. The non-toxic solvents in each new coat will remove the previous coat.
MSRP $15.95- 1 oz
OLD MASTER POLISH
Old Master Polish is a liquid wax-based polish that leaves a soft shine and a thin protective coat on the instrument preventing the rosin from etching the finish. Unlike competitor products that use Xylene (a highly toxic chemical) that can soak into the wood and permanently dampen the tone of the instrument, Old Master Polish does not use oils and sits only on the surface of the instrument. When applied properly Old Master Polish will never builds up. The non-toxic solvents in each new coat will remove the previous coat.
