Changing Guitar Strings When do you change your guitar strings? The sound produced by guitar strings arouses the audience and at the same time raises the confidence level of the guitar player. But when the strings start to sound dull, tarnish or break, neither the guitarist nor the audience is pleased with the sound. There is, therefore, the need to replace them if the quality sound is to be maintained. The challenge here is knowing the exact time to change the strings. Below is a guide on when to change your guitar strings.   When is it Time To Change Guitar Strings?

A good sign here is when your strings begin to discolor and rust. These are clear signs that the strings are aging and becoming weak. At this stage, the sound might not be the same as the strings were new and shining.    The first step in changing your guitar strings is selecting your new ones. To do this, you need to know the sound that you want to be produced as well as what thicknesses your guitar can handle without bowing the neck or raising the bridge too much (if you have some floating bridge).
