if you use it everyday for 5-6 hours then it will be 3-5 months
if you rarely use it then about 2-4 years.

so is that.

and, actually the best way to tell when you "need" to change tubes is when you hear a noticable difference in your tone. when you start having tone degradation, its new tube time. too many factors go into it to tell you that you need to change it x number of years when playing y hours a day.

Actually it is. Your tone will begin to degrade, then you'll start to hear some humming which will turn into buzzing in short order.
