I'm a fairly new bass player and have yet to restring a bass. I've played guitar for more than 20 years and installed many sets of guitar strings, however. Over the years, I've learned tricks for getting a good fit, no slippage, proper windings around the post, etc. for all sorts of guitars. I just bought a set of flatwound D'Addario Chromes for my P-Bass and I'd like to know if there are any tricks to properly installing bass strings. For example, most of what I've read on TalkBass suggests that flats on a P work better strung through the bridge than the body so the windings don't separate. I can do that! Any other tips or tricks? How many windings around the post for each bass string? Does the "measure out two tuners worth and wind" thing work on bass? Thanks!
