Am I supposed to have serving applied where it touches my string stop? I had the shop install the new string and they did not do that. Is it really needed? Should I take it back and have them do that?

I always put serving where my string stop meets the string. Have tried it without and the string gets fuzzy pretty quick. Actually, the shop should have at least asked you if you wanted it or not.

It would be worth the couple extra bucks to have it done.

Yes, it should be served there. Your shop should have done that without you even asking them to. That tells me a little about the shop that you go to...........

It will save some wear on your string I would serve it even if you just do it yourself with dental floss if you dont have any serving material.

Maybe they should have, maybe not, but how about you learn to do it yourself. No special tools needed, just some serving thread.

You can also use shrink tubing. Just mark the string where you need it to go, slide it on, and heat it with a hair dryer on low.


Stone Mountain actually sells it as an option.
