    I change my flatwounds every 2 years or so.
  4. My strings will last a month...if. I kill them, I don't know why, I play multiple hours everyday and pluck alot so Im thinking thats a good reason. The Dean Markleys I have on now have made it to almost 2 months now, so I might stick with them
  5. hey chris h.
