Changing Strings

  • Ensure that the string’s ball end is located firmly between the bridge pin and internal bridge plate.

  • Place your hand inside the soundhole and feel for the ball and pin.
  • Cut the string 4 – 5 cm over length, this will produce 2 – 3 winds around the machine head post.

  • As the string is tightened, pull the string back gently.

  • Tug on the string as it is being tightened.

  • Once the string is tightened and tuned to concert pitch, gently stretch the string and retune until it holds it’s tuning.
