Set of 37 individual universal piano bass strings.  Universal bass strings are a convenient way to have a replacement bass string on hand when waiting to have a custom bass string isn't feasible.  Having all of the different sizes available will ensure that you have the string you need when the time comes that you need a replacement.

Instructions for installing universal bass strings:

1.  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 the point where the windings end on other strings toward the bass bridge.  Cut through the copper winding of the new string at this point.

2.  Stretch the replacement string across to the upper plate bearing or agraffe.  Line up the replacement string with the windings of the other strings.  Measure 1/4" from the winding line toward the opposite (hitch pin) side to allow for stretch.  Cut through the copper winding of the new string at this point.

3.  Stretch the replacement string up to the tuning pin.  Allow enough length for 3 coils on the tuning pin.  Cut through the winding and wire core to remove excess length of the replacement string.

4.  Be sure to cut through the copper winding with a circular motion in the same direction as the winding has been done.  This will prevent the windings from loosening their grip on the core wire.

5.  Remove the replacement string and unwind the copper winding at both ends up to the scored sections.  Then install as you would any custom made string.
