But I've often read of those who prefer to change the bass strings relatively frequently while leaving the trebles in place. The implication is that the trebles improve or at least change in some way.
What I'm wondering is what are the specific effects you may have noticed when leaving the treble strings on for longer periods. Do they get brighter and more sharply defined? Warmer and rounder? More powerful? More refined? Other? Or is it simply that the trebles don't deteriorate as quickly as the wound basses? Any thoughts would be appreciated. THANKS.
I have many years of experience of not changing strings for many months lol. Classical guitar strings in my place are always out of stock. I always use D'Addario EJ30. The treble is still the same. I leave it on for 6 months, played it everyday for 4 hours. I expected the treble strings to sound warm, like a Cedar guitar. But it's still the same bright sound, but the volume decreased, the sound is not sharp and crisp anymore. So it did not improve, especially the bass it's much worse.
