Strings are, not surprisingly, one of the most important features of any string instrument. Properly maintaining your instrument's strings is one of the easiest ways to ensure that your instrument is able to perform at its best.
For most seasoned players, the semi-regular chore that is string replacement is a simple one. When their instrument's strings become worn, weathered, or damaged, they know exactly which types of strings they're going purchase. For new or younger players, this same task can prove somewhat challenging.
