Thread Name: Pre-stretching guitar strings
Subject: RE: Pre-stretching guitar strings
I am with Bruce on this one. When I restring, I always tune to a semitone abvoe concert then do all the tidying up bits, dead stings thrown away etc and then retune to concert.This usually means the strings are settled when I come to play, even if I have only restrung the afternoon before a gig. This seems to work with Guitar Banjo and Mandolin.
