    Hey Jodi, this question has been answered in another forum. How do you know when you should change your strings?

    When the strings start to show signs of wear like the actual thread starts to show on the string

    I like to change my strings once every 3 months. Sometimes I have to change the E string more often because it tends not to last as long as the others. It also depends on what I am doing.. if I have a recital or an audition, I like to have strings that are no older than 2 weeks for the big day.
    A good way to know that you need new strings is paying attention to the intonation.. Old strings tend not to stay perfectly in tune.

    Interesting. I have been using my strings for 6 months now and I don’t notice any wear. They actually sound better than in the beginning 😉 But that’s probably to do with other things. Anyways, I hope I can these strings a couple months more.

    I hadn’t changed my E string in a couple of months, and it snapped in my face while I was practicing! I’m now afraid that will happen during a performance, but newly changed strings go out of tune so easily :/

    I normally forget to change my strings for a long time…. can it have any bad long term effects on my violin?

    I sometimes wait until the threads start coming undone on the strings. I know I should be changing them BEFORE they get that bad, but I’m part thrifty and part lazy…
