So worship leaders – how often do you change strings?
I usually lead worship with my trusty acoustic guitar, a Taylor 314CE. Taylors are naturally bright-sounding guitars, which I love.
The Elixir Nanoweb 80/20 Bronze strings I use help keep everything bright, and they sound better than other strings I’ve tried (and believe me, I’ve tried em all).
They settle in after a couple of days of use, and then have a very consistent sound – with much brightness – for 1-2 months or so.
When it’s time to change strings, my sound starts to lose some of that brightness. The guitar “goes to mush” – the brightness and consistent definition starts disappearing. And the guitar gets a bit, shall we say, persnickety, when it comes to tuning.
So I replace the strings, and everything goes back to normal for awhile.
How about you? How often do you change those strings? I’d love to know!
