: Between boiling the strings and conditioning the neck, boiling was *definitely* what made the big difference! You're removing all the oils, dirt, and gunk from the strings, so they're going to vibrate more freely.
That's not what the boiling does. when you play the strings, the windings get loose. boiling tightens the windings so the string is restored somewhat to it's original condition.
i hope this helps
