    Any information around on how to wind your own strings?
  2. Hi.

    Plenty for guts, not so much for metal strings.

    Why do You seek that information?
    AFAIK (as a BEng Mech.) the wire material for guitar/bass strings is very hard to obtain in quantities less than tens (/hundreds?) of kilogram spools.
    You'd need at least two core gauges and two winding gauges for a regular 4 string set.
    More balanced result comes from carefully selected gauges for both though.

    TBer knuckle head might be able to shed some insight on the matter ;).
