(EN)String tension adjustment apparatus lightening the string adjustment burden of stringed musical instrument. Stringed musical instruments, in prior art, were necessary for loosing all strings in unused state and for tuning each of all strings wherever players used them, and this was quite a burden for the players. This invention is provided with an apparatus to loosen all strings together with a single operation after the first string adjustment and also to loosen the tightened strings in used state at the same time. The invention contains a movable stand (4), capable of reciprocal motion, installing string winding attachment (5) at a head (10) of the stringed instrument, and is constructed to loosen all of the tightened strings and to tighten the strings into the original state by forcing to move said movable stand (4) by means of reciprocal motion means (6). This invention also contains a string loosing-proof means by fixing surely string end to string post (50), a means making tuning strings visually and a means maintaining the tightened state of strings, added to the string adjustment apparatus of the present invention, so that good performance of the apparatus is further promoted. This invention can be applied to the stringed instrument sounding by use of strings, such as double bass, violin, violoncello, etc.
