You have 4 strings on your violin. You have 4 pegs.  You have 4 fine tuners.  This is a tip we will use the 4th day of each month.

Examine your fine tuners regularly. You will usually find that things are just fine, but every so often you will see that you have tightened the string so much that there is not much, if any, space left on the tuner to tighten your string.

Violin Tip of the Day -- Violin Student Central -- February 1
Today's Tip in a Nutshell:
     Fine Tuners are Great, But You Need to
     Make Sure They Don't Damage Your Violin.
Loosen the fine tuner, so that your string goes a little flat. Turn the peg back, so that you raise the pitch of the string that way.  Then adjust the fine tuner so that you bring the string back into tune.
It is much easier in the long run to check the tuners regularly and make adjustments when it is convenient than to be hurrying to tune and find that you need to adjust the fine tuners right then!
