Morin khuur question

Postby Romy » Fri Mar 04, 2011 3:30 am

Hi everyone,

We just got a morin khuur. I'm looking for some advice about how to properly care for my new instrument.

First off, it's got the nylon strings that are braided at the ends. Is it okay to leave them tightened when I finish playing? Or should they be loosened and retightened every time I play?

Second, the pegs slip and won't stay in place which makes it pretty impossible to keep it in tune while I'm playing. Is there something I can put on them to keep them from slipping? I used to play violin and seem to remember there being a product that does something like that.

Thanks for your time. It's been really educational browsing through posts on here.
