Do you save strings when you change whole sets?

I do, for spares and the like, which was rather lucky tonight.

It's simple to sound like them, tune your guitars down a couple of steps but don't worry if it's actually IN tune or not, then just plug in and throw your guitar out the window.

Yes, just one pack, just incase I need some.
Although I have quite a few high e's since they break frequently.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
Let me in for a minute, you're not my life but I want you in it

I always try to replace the whole set at once, but if one string breaks and I do not have a whole set I will use an old string for the time being (until i get a whole set to replace them).

I change my strings every about 2-3 months anyways.

I make my old strings into bracelets and such.

I have about twenty guitar-string bracelets lying around my house.

That really pissed me off


I usually save old strings, but I dont have any..
I do save used drum heads though too.

I do save strings but snip the ends off so they wont go back on teh guitar.
I reuse them on a DIY hotwire foam cutter I made years ago. Guitar strings really hold up well for that type of thing.

Nope, I always tie them in a knot so they can never be played on again then i throw them away. Its like the end of a chapter in the guitars life.

i always reaplace my strings at least once a moth and throw out the old ones, i usualy play ernie balls and i find the sound great but wear out really quickly.
just so i dont have to edit every post i make, let me clarify something I CANT TYPE WELL....thanks
