Unwinding at bridge.

Postby Condorman » Thu Jul 12, 2018 1:06 pm

I am having trouble with my e strings unwinding at the ball end in my Kiesel Vader 6x.

I have used 3 or 4 strings from daddario and an earnie ball cobalt pack.

This only happens to 9s. Only e.

The ball end does not pop off. The long winding loops simply get pulled through the tighter loops.

1) Has anyone else encountered this?

2) My string touches the edge between the string holder and the saddle. If I start from further back I can avoid this contact point. How are your strings set up? Are they touching that contact point or does it go straight from ball end to saddle?

Thanks so much in advance. This had been frustrating me since I've been stuck with 10s and I want to go lighter.
