What must I take into consideration when changing strings?

  1. Choose the right string length, especially for viola or double bass.
  2. Change the strings one after the other (never change multiple strings at the same time).
  3. When changing strings, always keep the other strings at the right pitch.
  4. Position the bridge (90 degrees to the instrument soundboard).
  5. Make sure you use enough graphite on the saddle and bridge. 
  6. Carefully wind the string using the peg.
