Hi Everyone! I’ve had my L&H 85CG stay at a family member’s home while I was out of state for about 4 years. I’ve got it back now and would like to restring it, but there are several broken strings. What would be the kindest way to go about doing this? I’ve always left complete restringings to the techs and changed out basses or octaves myself when needed. Should I just go down the line and change to change each string first octave down to basses? Should I bring it up to pitch immediately or gradually? Bring A’s, B’s, C’s, etc. up to pitch per octave to even out the tension? Does it even matter?
Thanks for any suggestions or tips!
