Instrument Cleaning

We love our customers and go above and beyond the recommended guidelines for instrument cleaning and handling at Scott Russ Music! To keep your instrument safe at home we want to share some useful information from the NAMM Foundation and the CDC.

The CDC has released information suggesting that the COVID-19 virus can remain on the following instrument surfaces for the stated amount of time:

Brass - Up to 5 Days
Wood - Up to 4 Days
Plastic - Up to 3 Days
Strings - Up to 3 Days
Cork - Up to 2 Days

The CDC recommends general cleaning techniques for instruments that have not been used or handled outside the above timelines. The NAMM Foundation general instrument cleaning guidelines can be found here:
