Installing Strings

Discussion in 'Strings [DB]' started by BassDelGato, Feb 22, 2004.

  1. Does anyone have a link to a site where there are pictures on how to install upright strings? i have always had other people put them on, but I have a classical music audition this wednesday and i need to get rid of these helicore hybrids fast, i just ordered some pirastro permanents which seems to be the best classical string from what people say. But i dont wanna screw up my audition becuase i strung my bass poorly, does anyone have a link to a good method to stringing my upright? or can someone tell me? help me im desperate :-(

    This doesn't help you at all, but yes, the helicore hybrids are terrible. At least on my bass they are. I order Obligatos from Upton last week and hope to get them any day now.

    You are brave to swap strings with only two days to an important audition, but I can hardly blame you.

    Good Luck . . .
