How to change atrings? Align the string in the bridge and nut: The bridge and the nut will have notches where the string should be. When you change strings do not tighten the string all the way until you check that the string is lined up properly with the notch in the nut and on the bridge. For the violin E string it is recommended that you use the small rubber sleeve protector on the string to protect the bridge from getting a deeper grove from the sharp string. Simply slide this sleeve into position on the bridge. The excess part of the sleeve should be on the tailpiece side with hardly any hanging over the other side so that it does not dampen the sound.
