    So, we've seen the "how to restore" old strings threads ad nauseam, but what do you guys do with your used, but still playable strings? I have several sets of flats laying around, all of them in the envelopes they came in, but I can never seem to roll them up as nice as they came in. Is there a better way to store strings?
     
  2. I just hang them in the closet. Thread them on a coat hanger and turn the hanger so that they hang straight down. (the coat hanger is actually laying on the shelf above).

    I put them in a medium size Ziplock freezer bag and put them
    in my gig bag. I have never needed them, but there good to have as a just in case. :cool:
