How to change bass strings?
Go slowly and do one string at a time. Loosen the first string and use pliers to pull the string out gently. Make sure the new string is lined up correctly through the pegbox. As you are feeding the string through, make sure the string is not pulling the bridge towards the fingerboard. If you are having any difficulty, reach out to our team for help!
