A selection of letters The Strad receives each month from its readers around the world: August 2021 issue
Has The Strad considered an article on vegan violin playing? As more people switch to ethical and moral animal-free/cruelty-free options, it’s important that wooden instruments have an alternative to animal-hide glue. Also, there need to be more professional-quality synthetic options available for bow hair as more professionals turn vegan.
The voices of vegan professional string players need to be heard, so that something can be done about our predicament. Society is only going to go more animal-free, so there will be more and more players needing vegan options.
