keep your old string balls!!!

  1. hey everyone, before you throw out your old strings, would you consider saving the balls for me? I want to make a necklace using them, however I do not go through strings very often and it would take me a lifetime to make a necklace.
    So if anyone would be willing to do so, I will be happy to pay the cost of shipping!
    PM me.

    Thanks

    If you do it, consider laquering them or clearcoating them in some way. IIRC brass will turn your skin green when sweat gets on it. I may be wrong, but I seem to remember this factoid from long, long ago.

    Heh. I'll see if I have old sets of D'Addario XLs lying around... the ballends are painted different pretty colors!

    When I was in HS I used to make necklaces for my girlfriends out of the string testes...

    Gets 'em right where you want 'em everytime... :oops:

    Hey man, I *think* I've got a couple of old sets of strings that I could send you. Shoot me a PM and I'll hook you up.
