    When you are readt to hear new ones. Seriously, no hard and fast rule here.
     
  4. Yea, either a string breaks, you want to try a new type, or you just know they need to be changed. I mean, that's an ironic question. How do you know when to replace strings? When it becomes evident to you. If there is no evident reason for you to change strings, don't.
