Musical Instrument Cleaning Tips


In light of the increase spread of viruses lately we thought it prudent to share some basics on keeping your musical instrument clean and sanitized. Brass and Wind instruments can act as Petri dishes for harmful bacteria. Always take the time to clean and sanitize your mouthpiece to avoid transmitting bacteria directly into your airways. In addition, proper hand washing before and after playing your instrument can solve many hygienic issues.

For Brass Instruments: Always remove your mouthpiece after playing. Drain water and wipe your instrument with a clean soft cloth. Regularly clean your mouthpiece with warm water and mild soap or by wiping it down with a moist alcohol pad. Sanitization of the mouthpiece can also be done by saturating the mouthpiece with Sterisol germicide solution. The entire brass instrument should be periodically brought in to a repair shop for servicing and disinfecting cleaning.

For Wind Instruments: Internal moisture can cause cracks or mildew. Always pull a clean, dry cleaning swab through your instrument to remove any moisture prior to storage, wipe moisture from keys, and store reeds in a reed holder. Clean mouthpieces, with the ligature and reed removed, with warm soapy water being careful not to get the cork wet. Dry completely before storing. Sterisol germicide can also be used to sanitize wind mouthpieces. Alcohol wipes can be used to clean a flute's lip plate. Bocals should be cleaned with a mild soap solution, running water and a bocal brush. The entire wind instrument should be periodically brought in to a repair shop for servicing and disinfecting cleaning.

For String Instruments: The best thing you can do for cleanliness is to wash your hands before and after each practice session. If you are using a hand sanitizer, make sure your hands are completely dry before handling your instrument as the alcohol in the hand sanitizer can dissolve the varnish on your instrument. We also caution against the use of household cleaners and other chemical disinfecting products on your instrument and bow. The disinfecting agent in most of these products is alcohol, which can potentially cause damage to your instrument.

A Message From Scott Russ Music About Coronavirus


To Our Scott Russ Music Customers,

During this uncertain and difficult time, we want you to know your safety and health are important to us. Like you, we have been monitoring the situation surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), and we want you to know we’re here to help make getting through this as easy as possible for each of you.

In the store, we have been spraying and wiping down all of the hard surfaces, door knobs and bathrooms with sanitizing sprays and wipes multiple times per day. In addition, we have been cleaning all of the instruments with sanitizing sprays and wipes. We are open and happy to provide respite from the chaos outside.

But we want to do more for you. For the next several weeks, we will be offering a few convenience services to help you continue to make music, even though you may be under quarantine.

  • You can shop our Reverb or Ebay online stores and we can offer free shipping on any order that is called in to our Merrick store for purchase, 516-377-7907.
  • For products that aren’t currently listed on our online stores, such as strings, tuners, picks, straps, reeds, other instruments (online is just a very small sample of our inventory), accessories and more, feel free to call us up (516-377-7907), or send an email to Scott. These items will also be shipped to you, free of charge on orders over $30*, or for a $10 shipping and handling fee for orders of $29 or less.
  • We will also offer curbside service if you’d like. You can call us and let us know what you need, then call when you’re at the store and we’ll bring it out to you (516-377-7907).

If you have any questions or concerns about how to defend yourself from COVID-19, check here for the latest from the CDC.

Though it may be in our best interest to stay separated for a while, music is what holds us all together. If we make this easy, we can all get through it with a song.

Musically Yours,
Scott and Geri Russ
