    Any concerns I should have about letting a new set of strings sit around uninstalled. Will they last pretty much indefinately?

    Between wholesale warehouses and low-volume stores, I figure that they sit around quile a while sometimes anyway, but I have also had one local string shop owner (more of a violin guy) suggest that there was a shelf life for strings.
  2. Gut would most likely have something to that efect , but i would guess that only corrosion laws would incur. I dont think it is an issue .
  3. Although i have heard people drooling over strings fresh from the factory...I wonder what thats about?....
