if they start to have a "dead" sound
if they become difficult to tune, or dont hold their tune
if they string becomes dented or flattened where it meets the fret.
Whenever you get the urge to change strings.....
#7
when they sound dead, or start to corrode (hope they don't get that bad before you change them though)

When you have to ask this question.

If you think that it MIGHT be time to change strings, then it probably is. I'm actually due for a change on both of my basses. My Schecter has had the same strings since November.

When you use Elixirs, you need to change them around every leap year. Although exaggeration aside, I had a set that lasted two years of frequent playing (split evenly between fingers and pick) and when I changed them, they were still 85% as good as the day I put them on. Most definitely worth the $40.

Sadly, I change my bass strings whenever I clean my bass...which isn't often at all.

I do around every year, maybe a little more often, or just whenever the dont sound as new.

According to the Ibanez website, my bass should have elixirs on them, if they are as good as you say they are, then I don't think so. They sound great, but I'm probably gonna have to change them in the next month or so.

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

when a man comes by and asks you if you'll donate them to a museum.

when they match your fireglo finish

when wiping the strings erodes your handkerchief

when the fungal growths literally cushion your rendition of 'Tommy the Cat'

when your pickups start complaining.

when the cheeto residue on your finger doesn't taste like cheetos.

you like?

ok, but seriously, every 2 months. or when they sound odd to you.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.
