A couple of months ago, we told you about the Stretcha, a tool that would stretch out new strings and prevent tuning problems. I ordered a couple of those for my husband and daughter, and they do help you stretch out new strings. Stretchas are pretty big, though, and they don’t always fit in the little cubbies and pouches in all guitar cases. The Planet Waves Peg Winder for Guitar incorporates a string stretcher and a bridge pin puller. It works with virtually all guitars, mandolins, and banjos, and it’s small enough that it should fit in your instrument case easier. The Planet Waves Peg Winder for Guitar is $5.89 at Amazon. Planet Waves also has a version of bass guitar, also $5.89 at Amazon.
