btw...How long does it take for violin strings to stop stretching? Guitars I know. Violins... Just a guess. Can you give the strings a bit of pressing and pulling before the bridge to get them to settle?
Yes, you can give the strings a little stretch, but be a bit more gentle than you would be with a guitar, as the components of the violin are more fragile. It's more likely that the tuning pegs are slipping, or the arched top is settling (on a violin in this price range).
