Yes, the bass strings deteriorate more rapidly than the treble...with the D string tending to be the most fragile. My experience has been that once the bass strings need replacing, even the treble strings have lost a bit of life and vibrancy and if they are not changed at the same time, the balance between bass and treble suffers. However, that is just me and I tend to use a set for 2-3 months (5-7 hours per week on average).
Just curious, what strings do you use?
D'Addario EJ44C. Though at the moment I'm using Augustine Regal/Blue as those will be on my new Yamaha when it arrives in June. I'll also be trying Hannbach SS 815 HT.
