How do you wrap em?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by BassistGod, Jan 30, 2003.


  1. How do you personally wind your strings around the tuning pegs? Is there a certain way to do it?

    Just wonderring because (this may be a bit anal) but I usually wrap them 3 times around making sure not to overlap. I always wind it so that the string comes off the peg at the bottom. I figure that will produce more tension and sustain because of the angle the string hits the nut.

    Anyone else have different ways of doing? I'd like to hear if you do?
