Ensuring the longevity and optimal playability of the baglama requires following effective preservation methods. Here are some crucial tips to consider for this purpose:


Cleanliness and Maintenance

 It's essential to play the baglama with clean hands, as oils and dirt on the hands can damage the instrument's wooden texture.

Wiping the baglama gently after playing helps keep it clean and enhances its durability.

Appropriate Temperature and Humidity

The baglama should be kept away from extreme hot or cold environments, as significant temperature changes can adversely affect the instrument.

Maintaining an ideal humidity level between 40% and 60% is crucial for preserving the health of the wooden structure.

Proper Storage

When not in use, the baglama should be stored in a suitable case or bag. This protects the instrument from sunlight, dust, and humidity.

If the used case has special compartments, they can be utilized for storing cleaning materials and other accessories.

String Replacement

 Regularly changing the strings enhances the baglama's sound quality and improves playability.

Checking the tuning adjustment of the baglama during string replacement is crucial for achieving the best performance.

By adhering to these tips, you can experience a significant improvement in the performance of your baglama. If serious maintenance or repairs are needed, consulting with a luthier or music store is the best course of action.
