Hey all, earlier this year I had a professional repair my grandfather's 5 string Kay Swingmaster. Love the bass and have loved learning to play, but at the title states, the low B string keeps breaking. It has broken two times total, once with the string installed by the shop (the shop is out of state from me) and the other by a string (for 3/4 bass) I bought and installed. A little bit of observation and research has led me to the problem, that the string is wrapping around the peg and breaking below the silk top. Can anyone help point out what is the best solution? Is there a way to shorten the string? Is the bass actually a 1/2 size and do they even make 1/2 size low b strings? Thanks for any help in advance!
