This is my non-ball-end solution. Works fine and you don't need more than one or two windings - pretty quick! E6 may stuck, depends on the make of strings and your tuners. Then make a knot, that's all.
I had seen this somewhere, I'll try this on the next set. It appears to do a good lock on the strings.
I don't mean to hijack the OP topic, just want to share I found by chance when perusing the Savino web site. I thought the way the string got locked at the roller is simple and effective, especially for thicker bass strings. The string goes over the roller and threads back in from behind. Then it runs down around and back up, coming down to be tucked by its own loop. See attached #1.
For smaller diameter trebles (except the G string from Augustine Imperial which is quite big), I adopted the Derek Hastek's "staple knots" as I found online (thus giving him credits). When the string gets out of the hole, it immediate goes back down to it, looping over its own. Remember to pull tight to make a lower profile "staple" possible. See attached #2 and #3.
I think making a good lock at this end will minimize settling time, thus was glad to find these methods online, and hope you may like it too!
