I was putting on some new strings tonight and started to wonder about a couple of things. I looked through all the string thread titles and didn't see anything that would answer these questions: What is an average amount of time for new strings to start staying in tune after they are first put on? These strings seem to be all over my tuner. So is there a break-in time for strings before they stay in tune consistantly? Is the tone (or any other property for that matter) of a string affected at all by how much of the string is wound around the tuning peg? In other words if you wrap the end around the tuning peg more times, are you more likely to get a darker or brigher tone?
