: : Well, heres the verdict: I took my bass in to see if the breaking had to do with the bridge. but the guy there said im not puting them on right. so the question is, HOW DO YOU PUT THEM ON!!!!!!!!!!! I cant keep spending so much on strings so please help. thanx

: Hey Brewmiester--
: Hmmm, sounds like you've got yourself quite a problem here. My first suggestion would be to stretch the strings BEFORE putting them on your bass. I usually pull at them in various places to get them a little less stiff. You may want to wear gloves to do this so you don't rip apart your hands. Next, make sure you cut off the excess string at the tuning peg, but not too much. You just want enough left to make a few turns of the peg before the string is tuned. After that, I'd just play for a few minutes, then retune, play, and retune, until they're keeping a pretty steady tuning. By the way, what kind of bass do you play and with what strings? Are you breaking all the strings, or just the higher (D and G)?? If you have any specific questions, please email me spdaydream@hotmail.com b/c I may be able to help you more. I have a pretty good streak of non-breakage, and I'd be happy to give you more specific help.
