I bet you are right. Since it is apparent from what has been written that there are plenty of drawbacks to tying strings at the block, what are the positives? Anyone?
I have thought of getting the bone beads myself and have also contemplated using ball end strings for ease of string changes. However, my aversion to public ridicule and shame caused me to avoid them altogether.
I did however purchase a bridge bib which is said to assure that I wont get string dings when my E, B or G break loose during changes....as they have. OUCH!
