Roll you own?
Any information around on how to wind your own strings?
Plenty for guts, not so much for metal strings.
Why do You seek that information?
AFAIK (as a BEng Mech.) the wire material for guitar/bass strings is very hard to obtain in quantities less than tens (/hundreds?) of kilogram spools.
You'd need at least two core gauges and two winding gauges for a regular 4 string set.
More balanced result comes from carefully selected gauges for both though.
TBer knuckle head might be able to shed some insight on the matter ;).
This was done a few years ago at D'Addario's factory. I had the pleasure of visiting it myself and it is simply amazing... 24 hours of string making!
