Changing Strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by DaMaGe, Inc., Jan 30, 2005.


  1. So I bought a set of GHS Bass boomers yesterday, cuz my current strings are in need of a change. But the problem is, I don't really know where to start and I don't want to screw up, bass strings aren't cheap you know.

    So do I take them off the headstock or the bridge first? And how do I get them loose from the bridge? And how do I get them in on both sides? I have an Ibanez SRX300 with a B100 bridge, if that will help any.

    Thnx in advance.
     
  2. Ok, so I followed the instructions and everything seemed to have to gone well until... I heard a disturbing sound *snap*.

    Yup, the string is f*cked up. It broke near at the binding. :meh:
     
  3. You proberbly wound the string to tight. Make you have a tuner handy or just wind them tight enough so they stay on then tune the bass. Also remember to have your volume turned up on your bass when tuning.
