Strings have a limited lifetime. Their longevity depends on several variables, including such things as string quality, practice time, and playing intensity, but they should definitely be replaced every six months for best performance. Ordering tip: Violinists, E strings need to be changed twice as often as other strings, so plan ahead and order an extra E string with each set.
