Everyone says different things when it comes to how often you should change your strings, and also depending on what type of string. Some say once every 3 months with X amount of practice, some say 6, some say 'when they wear out or become false'. To be honest, I've always been the 'When they wear out or become false' type of person, but now I have a much better violin and expensive set of strings, I am becoming curious as to what IS the right amount of time people should be leaving before changing their strings?
Are there any differences between the type of string used? If so, it would be good to put here just as a reference for anyone else who is curious.
I have a set of Pirastro Passione Solo strings, which are expensive and something I can't afford to invest in too often.
Thank you, and happy new year!
