This is my first attempt at replacing strings. I have an Aoyama lever harp with 3 strings that need replacing (one string broke during transport and two others broke during tuning).
I started out by replacing the 12th string (D). I watched a couple of videos but then found one explaining it more clearly in Dutch. I did exactly what was indicated in this video but clearly something is wrong, because when i tried to wrap the string around the tuning pin, it made a sound as if it was popping again (but it wasn’t popped). Here is the result. The end of the string is loose.
So the problem is, I don’t know how to exactly tie the string onto the tuning pin correctly, because I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.
I’m guessing I need to tie the string in a knot on the tuning pin so the end isn’t loose like it is now?
