I'm thinking of getting a stock of these Passione strings that seem to be the natural match to my violin. But that made me wonder how long gut lasts for? Which then made me wonder how old they are when you buy them and whether they should have a pull date like I assume (natural) sausage skins have :)
And then I wondered if maybe even the synthetic cores also have a lifetime - I mean plastics dry out and go brittle. Do strings? Or maybe it all takes longer than my lifetime.... And maybe I'm just wondering too much?
