last night i wasted two G strings on my stingRay. i was just practicing popping and my pretty new elixir was gone. so i was tring to replace the whole set with Sunbeam, but the problem that i want to ask heppend. because it was my second time changing string and the sunbeam didn't have bands on its end the G sting kept slipping. evntually the sting got too short after i was cutting it to make sure i get the unbent sting. i'm thinking of just getting another single G string of sunbeam and try again the question is what can i do to prevent slipping? i think i was pulling the string enough when i was winding it. but maybe not. also i think that bands( colorful threads on the end?) are good to have. what strings have them? does DR have that too?
