    I still keep forgetting to twist the balls with one hand while winding the post with my other...

      Don't twist the balls too tightly, though, otherwise it could go flat...

          I once had a young producer make me change strings every hour which was just insane and I ended up having to tell him to fuck off.

            I don't play much anymore, so with my Charvel I change the strings once a year.

            My Ibanez with the Floyd Rose I bought...15 or so years ago (?)...I've only had the strings changed a few times because I've never really played it much. I keep meaning to watch a youtube vid to learn how to change the strings on a Floyd Rose (the Ibanez was the first guitar I owned with a Floyd Rose), but I just haven't got around to it. I will the next time I do, because I had them changed a few months ago by a guitar tech working at the store I bought it at. The dude charged me $85 to change the strings. Not crying poverty or anything, but fuck me: THAT seems a bit steep.

            When I was younger, I didn't change them all that frequently.

              I've been using these which is helping make them last longer.



              It's not even the cost of the strings at this point it's more about the pain in the ass of changing them.
