Step 1: Removing the Broken String

First off you need to make sure you remove the broken string of your violin completely, before you attempt to install a new one.

Step 2: Putting the String in the Peg

Then you need to make sure to put the right end of the string into the peg, then carefully put the string into the peg hole and carefully wind it just don't do it too tightly or else you might make the string pop and you'd have to buy a whole new one.

Step 3: Tuning the Finished String

once you've put the string in the peg and you feel its tight enough make sure to tune it and if you've done everything correctly you should be done.

    Thank you for this, I got a violin for my birthday and one of the strings was broken so the lady who gave it to my grandma(who ended up giving it to me) took the string off and put a package of strings for it. My mom said she would replace but she never figured it out so hopefully this will help her!(or I might be able to do it myself)
