I know this topic has probably been raised before in one way or another, but what fiddle strings do you use and how long do you keep them on before changing. I know this depends on how often you play and for how long, but it would be interesting. I play most days for at least 45 mins a day and then once a week at our session and for barn dances at least once a month. I use D’addario (sp?) helicore medium strings and I am quite pleased with them. They are not as warm sounding as the dominants I have used previously but they don’t stretch like the dominants and they fit the fine tuners. Dominants do not fit fine tuners very well, I once broke one of the fine tuners trying to prise a dominant string into it.
