UNIVERSAL BASS STRINGS
SCHAFF UNIVERSAL BASS STRING PACKET
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR INSTALLING SCHAFF UNIVERSAL REPLACEMENT PIANO STRINGS
Select a string from the Schaff Replacement Set which matches most closely the overall diameter of the broken string.
Place the loop end of the wire over the hitch pin and
across the bass bridge. Line up replacement string with other
strings in the piano. Measure 1/4” from point where windings
end on other strings toward the bass bridge. Cut through
copper winding of new string at this point.
Stretch replacement string across to upper plate bearing
or agraffe. Line up replacement string with windings of other
strings. Measure 1/4” from winding line toward opposite
(hitch pin) side to allow for stretch. Cut through copper
winding (see No. 6) of new string at this point.
Stretch replacement string up to the tuning pin. Allow
enough length for 3 coils on tuning pin. Cut through
winding and wire core to remove excess length of the
replacement string.
Be sure to cut through copper winding wire with a circular
motion in the same direction as the winding has been
done. This will prevent windings from loosening their grip
on core wire.
Remove replacement string and unwind copper winding
at both ends up to the scored sections. Install as a custom
made string.
Keep your replacement
set complete - return the
tags from all replacement
strings you use.
