@Tsukasa I've used ribbon to restring my MSDs that were having problems. I'm not sure how much ribbon you'd need for a SSDF... I wonder if biast tape would work. I got some when someone gave me their old sewing machine... but I didn't know where to put it or how to work it without instructions.
I totally keep forgetting about Volks selling that kind of stuff. O_o;
What are clamps? Are they the item you pull string out of an arm when changing hands and things?
