Strings Show us your string-changing kit

Sorry, was out of town so am late to the party.

Here is my string changing drawer. You can’t see the Music Nomad clippers. I also used to keep a spreadsheet that I invariably forgot to update, so now I just tear off a square from the string package, write the change date and any notes and leave it in the case. In this example I used the Savarez trebles with a UkeLogic smoothwound and also cleaned and oiled the fretboard.IMG_1003.jpeg
This is perfect timing! I just purchased some fretboard oil and now it seems I'll need some fret wire cleaning supplies. I've never been so excited to get cleaning supplies!

Well, that sure feels nice... My first time polishing frets and oiling a fretboard. Thankful for this thread!
Ooooo.… Just looked it up on Amazon & ordered a couple. “Pleasant vanilla scent”. Yay! Next time I change strings ….
You just need a small could do an entire uke with a 1" x 1" square. I like to protect the fretboard (painters tape would work but I use sticky notes, lol) cuz they are kinda oily feeling.
I have a number of different stringed instruments, so my kit contains strings for guitars, banjos, ukes, dulcimers, and bouzoukis.
I have had the same kit for probably 30 years…51F8800E-991F-45A0-92FE-0608C780A297.jpeg9402F27D-B6E5-4616-AA84-EE7DD5095A49.jpegB02CCAB0-5436-4C30-BE9F-3E5C8554E1D8.jpeg
