It was 'about to slip' earlierJeffrey Armbruster wrote: ↑Sat Sep 23, 2017 8:55 pmOh no I'm happy with my stringing technique--I've never had an issue, except once with a g string while stringing a new brand. However, putting the string through the hole twice is something I never thought of! Thanks.
Mostly, I thought that it was unusual to have a string slip after two days of pretty lengthy sessions. I mean, why not earlier?
I also do this, but insert it in a way that creates a loop around the tensioned part of the string. This website shows it better: http://www.derek-hasted.co.uk/faqs/restring/
The big mistake that I have made is clipping the string completely off when trying to cut the excess off at the roller. I have had better results since I switched from standard wire cutters to a small end nipper. Subject of another thread I suppose.
