New fiddle strings... 10 years 2 months ago #6042

How often do you change strings on a fiddle? I'm hoping my instrument sounds this bad because the strings need changing, and not because of my bad playing!

Fretmentor....Please make a "fiddle forum".
just sayin'

Mompodell...I had asked my instructor a while back and she says the strings last quite a while...just make sure that you wipe them when you finish playing to get rid of the rosin...(and with a clean cloth that's not been exposed to Bounce or any other type of softener.)

Good point about the wiping. Also, use good strings... They sound better and are easier on the instrument. I like perlon core, nickel wound Dominants
