Thread Name: Pre-stretching guitar strings
Subject: RE: Pre-stretching guitar strings
Sometimes I stretch 'em, sometimes time stretches 'em, depending on circumstances. For nylons I tune two high at a time (tension countered by the stretching and lowering of the others) to reduce time. I guess that the strings, especially nylons, stretch more evenly when allowed to sit, but I have no scientific evidence of it.
