Is it OK to hang guitars on the wall?
The answer is no. It’s generally accepted as a safe way to hang a guitar because the downward exertion from the weight of the guitar isn’t nearly as strong as the pull of the strings in the opposite direction. You may need to run a humidifier in the room with your guitar during the winter when the heat is on.
Is it OK to hang violin on wall?
If you must hang a violin on a wall, be sure it’s not an outside wall and that it’s not exposed to sunlight or hot or cold air currents. If you really want to display it, you might consider making a glass front cabinet.
How do you hang a guitar on the wall without drilling?
Try using a ceiling & floor bracket system along with a 2′ x 4′ timber post. The bracket is secured against the ceiling and floor so there is no wall damage. Once the bracket system is in place, screw your guitar hanger onto the timber post.
Is it bad to lean your guitar against the wall?
No, this is not a myth. If your guitar is leaning against a wall for an extended period of time with the strings facing out (guitar back to the wall) your guitar neck may develop a forward bow. You will notice this immediately upon playing your guitar because the action on you guitar will literally, suck out load!
Is it better to keep a guitar in a case or on a stand?
Unless you’re humidifying your guitar with a case humidifier, or have small kids or pets running around that may knock it over, it’s perfectly fine to leave a guitar on a stand instead of keeping it in a case when you’re not playing it.
What can I use to hang my guitar on the wall?
It is possible to securely hang a guitar on drywall, brick, or pretty much any other type of wall material. Brick is the safest option as it creates an incredibly strong mount. If you want to mount your guitar on a brick wall, you’ll need to drill into the brick and install appropriate mounting hardware.
Can you hang a guitar on plasterboard?
Re: Hanging Guitars from Cavity/Plasterboard Walls
Plasterboard walls are just fine. You just need to do it right, use the right fittings, and think about what you are doing. With proper fixings you can easily put a number of shelves on a single plasterboard wall.
What is a string swing?

Can you hang a guitar with Command Strips?
A wall-mount for a guitar may be light on its own, but much of the force it will be experiencing – from the weight of the guitar – is bringing it downward, while the closest command strip to support this weight will be ~1/2 foot away physics says no. Use the screws.
