    anybody recommends or knows exactly how often it´d be good for my bass to have the strings changed?
    thanks a lot!
  2. 1/ When they won't hold tuning or intonation.

    2/ When they no longer sound good to you.
  3. Just David got it right. That's how I do my changes when they are ready. Then again, this totally is subjective. Some folks like only the sound of new, crisp strings. Others prefer them with a little age and no new zing, and others like to change them only if they break.
    Your call.
