How to Restring Your Violin or Viola – a very helpful video published by D’Addario Orchestral Strings:
Key points covered:
- The instrument is reliant on the tension of the strings so do one at a time otherwise you risk the bridge and soundpost moving or falling over
- Add graphite to the string contact points
- How do I know when its time to change my strings?
- Make sure you remove excess rosin from the strings.
- Can I put full size strings on a smaller instrument?
