Guzheng String Replacement 古箏換弦
To many beginners, replacing a string seems challenging. The most time consuming part is to tighten and tune the string afterwards. The actual process of getting rid of the old string and threading the new string is relatively easy and fast. Here are some tips:
- Don’t be afraid to change the strings. It is normal to see broken strings because of frequent use and wear and tear.
- The thicker the string, the more strength one needs to use to turn the wrench.
- After a new string is installed, its sound may be out of tune frequently. It will stabilize after a few days or weeks.
