Have you ever been tired after spending some time changing the guitar strings? Would you rather prefer to have a device that make that automatically?
I'm trying to make this as a prototype for a project at my college, so please help me! Tell me your suggestions about what size or color should it be or any kind of specifications you think is important, and if you'll consider this as an helpful invention!

I don't mean to be a hater but I think you have to make it very small and inexpensive. Thinking of the complex motions that go into changing strings it will be impractical

ehm I was thinking to make only something that does the rotating movement of the hand while adjusting the strings to the peg, and about the price the mayor cost of the production is in the motor that if I'm not wrong is not more than 10 I think

if it could change all six and put them to about the right tension, it might be workable.

on any design, or at least both 3-3 and 6 on a side.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

String changing is a simple and mindless task that provides a great little window for performing some mundane maintenance. It's so easy that I would never even consider some kind of robot or machine to do it for me.


I mean, tired? Really? Take a fuckin' walk around the block. Jog, bitch. If a string change is too much for you, maybe you should find something tall to jump off of.

uhm about the ernie ball one I could make an improvement on the design, one of the users says it is too slow and if by some reason you are in a presentation and need to change strings fast that would help a lot

If you're tired after changing your guitar's strings, how you change the strings is the least of your problems, my friend.

He said he's trying to make something that will turn the pegs.

That's why there are string winders. A machine wouldn't really know when to stop without breaking the string.

I thought about that too, maybe it will have something that measures the tension or a constant number of revolutions to make

I was just putting a new pickup in my guitar today, and while I was restringing I noticed that the fact that there was no electronic short-cut or easy way to do it was actually kinda refreshing considering I do nothing but computer work all fucking day.

I then went to the gym and moved around heavy things for an hour. For relaxation.

What a bizarre world we live in where the repetitive and mechanical are actually RELAXING.

EDIT: No, I don't want your automated string-changer.

make a floyd rose that tunes and strings itself and can account for change in string gauges and i will be your sex slave.
