    Please pay attention to which forum you're posting in. In English - as in music - READING IS FUNDAMENTAL.

    Off to BG.

    I believe Duff is talking about DB strings and you aren't.
    Depending on use -
    Spirocores 1-4 years
    Obligatos 6-12 months
    Flexocor 1-2 years

    These are my results. Anybody else with something different, jump in.

    Checking both profiles, forget my response.

    Spirocores: 3 1/2 months average. I sometimes leave them on up to five months if cash is tight. I can kill a set of Slab strings (any flavor) in one night. I can also dissolve concrete with the sweat from my brow :)

    My apologies. Apparently this is a bi-instrumental thread as it is listed on The Bass side of things.
