What is wiping the strings with a damp towel going to do?Chuah Hui Hsien wrote: ↑Tue Dec 25, 2018 1:08 pmYou can wipe the E, B, G with slightly moist towel, and melt a ball end at each string before you tie them on the bridge. Carbon strings tend to be more slippery than nylons. That is why I avoid using them on my new guitar.
And you can attach a cardboard lengthwise at the brigde, better to use low tack tape if you have French Polish top.
Tune up your string or bring up the pitch gradually. Check against the ties as you tune. Make sure they didn't slip.
Ok, I gotcha now. I just tuck Miya string tails under the loop on the next adjacent string. If it slips, it won’t make a ding on the top that way. I also do 4,4, and 3 loops on the E through G strings. I didn’t think there could be stuff on the strings before I put them on.Chuah Hui Hsien wrote: ↑Tue Jan 01, 2019 2:56 amWatched and learned from Lubos Narpstek's video on "How to change strings on 12 holes tie block".
To keep our hands clean, and the strings free from any oily residue before tying.Been following his method since then, so far so good, no problem on both 6 holes and 12 holes.
