  1. #1

    Default How often do you change strings?

    I'm just curious. i find that i change my guitar strings about every 4 months or so. Do uke strings last forever?

    My answer is "when they need it."

    They can last a very long time however they do start to sound different so I change mine every 4-6 months or if one breaks I change all of them right away

    Standard response to the question
    ought to be 'How long is a piece of...'!
    As everyone will tell you,when they no
    longer sound the same,ie not so bright,
    not so loud,whatever it is that you like
    about the strings you use:when it is no
    longer there,time for a change!

    I've hardly ever needed to change a string just from "time" alone..

    It's usually when I want to change the brand of strings or take out the saddle for an action adjustment..

    I do it a lot, probably more then I "need" to, because I enjoy trying out different types and brands of string.

    I only change them when I absolutely have to as I can't stand the break in period!

    If you think it is the time for new strings then it probably is.
    UU has a great search feature, you might try it.

    They last forever. I hear a lot of companies are going to start building their products from ukulele strings so everything last forever. Wouldn't be very good for business, but it's a step in the right direction for the population.
