    i am attempting to string my bass with a set of Darco strings but am finding that they are way too long is there a way to cut them to size without wrecking the strings?
     
  2. Yes, measure to where you want to cut them, then with pliers, make a 90 degree bend in the string, to make a nice "L" shape, and then use wire cutters to cut right below the bend, and your string will be fine.
