You will need
  • - bass guitar;
  • - a set of strings.
If four Colca (devices for stretching and fixing the string) on your bass guitar are arranged in a row, use the following sequence of actions: remove the first old string, E, insert a new one from the back side of the bridge and pass through the entire mechanism. When you reach the Colca fold (at a distance of about ten inches from the peg) and cut it off. The bend needed for winding from slipping from the string. The end of the strings insert into the hole, pull it through the string and wrap it (tight) using the peg. Twist the peg counterclockwise. If the second round is below the first, the transverse tension will be better, in addition there will be a clear contact of the string and the nut. Push down on the string, bending it slightly at the bridge at the moment when there will be about a semitone to the exact settings to better her record. Repeat these same steps for the strings A, G and D.
Removing the old string, you can simplify your work if before pulling through the bridge mechanism will shorten it to the tip. Remember that if you short cut the string, the transverse tension is bad. This can lead to hum.
If your guitar pick is the "two by two" (in a square), then first remove the old string is, Then insert a new one from the back side of the axle and pass it through the mechanism at the end of the fingerboard, and at a distance of five to seven cm after Colca fold and cut so that the winding does not spill. Inserting the tip of the string into the hole, wrap the string using the peg, so new coils were located below the previous one. Repeat all these steps for strings A. Strings, D and G pull, acting on the principle "mirror".
