What you need to change the strings

Remove all the strings.

It is efficient to cut and remove the strings with a string cutter (a kind of wire cutters). In that case, be sure to loosen the strings before cutting.

ペグ

String post

It is a metallic part that wraps one end of the string. Tune by adjusting the string tension by turning the peg.

String guide

String guide

It is a string guide that holds the 1st and 2nd strings and prevents the strings from coming off the nut. It also has the effect of increasing the tension of the strings.

Pass the string from the bridge so that the string rests on the saddle.

Match the length of the strings.

Let's string starting from the 4th string.
Keep it taut from the bridge and bend about 1.5 pegs from the winding position.

The peg can be turned smoothly by using a tool called a string winder.
The winding direction is such that the strings pass inside the string post. Also, do not overlap below the string post.

チューニングをする。

Tuning.

Since it is easy to install string that have been stretched, it takes time for the tuning to become stable.


String replacement time

Unlike guitar strings, bass strings are hard to break. The replacement time varies depending on the person, but it is more common to replace the sound when it disappears (expressed as "dead sound") rather than replacing it after the string breaks. In addition to the lack of the glaring original sound, Flat-Wound strings have a longer life than Round-Wound strings, so many people do not replace them for a long time. By the way James Jameson, a bassist, is famous for not replacing flatwound strings for more than a decade.

Cautions when changing

Before changing your bass strings, let's check the condition of the bass. If the bass is not in the proper condition, even if you change the strings with care, the sound may be choppy or the strings may break immediately.

If the string breaks immediately during re-stringing or when tension is applied, it may be due to the nut, string post, or string guide. If you have just replaced the string but it has been broken from the nut near the string post, please check below.

  • Nut groove is not appropriate
  • There’s a sharp edge at the corner of the string post.
  • The strings wound around the string posts may cross along the way.
  • Friction is occurring in the string guide.
