Stretcha String Stretcha, Worldwide Innovation, Efficient tool for stretching guitar and bass strings, Fastest and easiest way to stretch strings, Strings will be stretched and stay in tune, Better tuning stability by equally stretched strings, Solid material for maximum durability
I bought my first String Stretcha a few years ago from the maker in the USA. I thought at the time it was a very fine little tool and decided to give it to my guitar technician friend who usually did string changing and setting up for me. He has found it absolutely indispensable as his 'go-to' string stretcher.
I've now got back into changing my own strings so I thought I'd better splash out on a Stretcha of my own. I say 'splash out' because, compared to other string multi-tools on the market, it is rather expensive. But, make no mistake, it really is worth every penny! The American guy who developed it took the basic principle of using your thumb and a finger to stretch the strings and converted it into solid plastic - thus completely avoiding any finger laceration. With a perfect ergonomic handle that fits firmly in your hand it's a joy to use. And, more's to the point, it does its job beautifully.
I don't think one can really recommend this too highly: it's an absolutely brilliant little invention that deserves to be far better known and better available than it is. I believe you can only get it from the American supplier or from Thomann - nowhere in the UK seems to sell it, which is a great pity.
So, to make string-changing and tuning up so much easier do not hesitate to invest in one of these: you'll never regret it - it's money well spent! A brilliant little tool!

No Is not
I've been using it for four months. On the electric guitar and on the concert guitar. Especially for the concert guitar, I had hoped that the strings would set the tone faster. Unfortunately, this has not happened. I've even done more than just the three workings (four I've dared) but also after that the mood is still decreasing for new pages.
Problem: 1) the strings are bent very narrowly. Although the other angle is then exactly back in the opposite direction, but that is already more than just pull. 2) the part also rubs on the winding of the strings. In the process, the material rubs from the plastic to the string, and secondly, material from the string. 3) On top of the fret is then already very tight and one rubs easily over the frets over it.
So I still use it to see if there is still something I have not noticed. But after that, the old-fashioned pull softly over all four fingers of the right hand. Somehow it does so then synonymous. The sits are drawn more than kinked. And that's the point, after all, not about kinking.
A pity, it would have been so nice to have a magic means that the strings of the concert guitar after three times raup downstairs makes voice stable.
