    I’ve broken 2 E strings when putting new strings on my violin, so now I’m really nervous when putting that one on…

    Hi Joey, did you have any luck with the E-string? Sometimes slipping the little rubber “mute” between the string and the bridge will help keep the string from cutting into the bridge and breaking.

    Yeah, even though I did that I broke it!

    These days I use an electric tuner and stop before I get to E, then fine tune it up to pitch. But every time I turn that peg I can’t keep from wincing.

    Ha I wince on the E-string too. I’ve had one pop near my face before!
