    Hello! I recently bought some gamut and anima strings and wondered if i should install them with the string going under the tailpiece or over it.

    Thanks

    Will there not be some sort of inbalance on the tailpiece if I do that? One side of the tailpiece pointing more down?

    Lots of people mix gut D and G with velvets on bottom. I don't think it'll be too bad. I have done velvet d/g and spiro E and A and there was no problem.
