I'd say this depends on the packaging. Most uke strings come in sealed plastic packaging but some, like Aquila, only have a sort of envelope holding the strings and thus they're exposed to the elements. I've seen some pretty bad examples of Aquila strings where the colour has changed from that typical white to almost yellow. Not a pretty site. But if the package is sealed you should easily be good for storing them for a couple of years.Another dumb question. If the strings are kept for long time, such as 2 or 3 years, will it change to bad sound or even not useful any more? Or it will stay as good as fresh new?
