"Breaking in" new strings
I just took upon the behemoth task of changing the strings on all my basses and of course they all sound completely different now. Not necessarily better, but different. I know that once they are "broken in" the improvement will become apparent, but I was just curious as to when/how long it takes for them to reach their optimum sound? Seems like every time I change strings I can't exactly pinpoint the time when they sound the best.
