The thing about cat guts being used for violin strings is a myth.

You made me nervous thinking my drums were not vegetarian.

I assume you're talking about the use of animal skin for drum heads? If that's the case, they've been made of mylar for decades so no worries there

Drums don't use skins, except like bongos. Source vegan drummer.

You mean play those instruments.

@Ajdee6 You mean play those instruments.

Well, surely a line exists somewhere when it comes to monetarily supporting art/entertainment made using animal labour or products? Most people would probably see listening to someone use a horse hair violin bow as a silly hill to fight and die on but it exists somewhere on the same spectrum as watching a fashion show where some of the clothes might be made using animal products or going to a bullfight.

Well, to get absolutely technical, aren't there vegans that refuse to wear wool? That would be the same as a horsehair bow, wouldn't it? And neither sheep nor horses have to die for those. Elephants definitely die for ivory.

Animals do die for dairy and eggs (look up chicken culling for example, also the veal industry). Just putting that out there

This is makes no sense even though I'm not a vegan

Or get certain vaccines, take certain medications, use certain makeups...

Or [Ham]mond organs

Not every vegan does it because of animal cruelty, some do it to lose weight

@lakerz690 Not every vegan does it because of animal cruelty, some do it to lose weight

If you are not eating animal products because you don't want animals to suffer, you are vegan. If you don't eat because you want to lose weight, you are eating plant based. Being vegan is about the philosophy, not about the health concern.

haha GREAT POINT

They should most certainly ask the musician if they will be giving a performance on a cruelty-free instrument.
