As our esteemed host Michael predicted, we wore out the GHS Strings that came stock on the Cigano within 2 weeks. I will put on a new set of Argentine 11s this weekend.
How long should I expect the Argentines to last if I am only practicing 30-45 minutes every day? I don't mind if they go a little dead - I actually prefer the warmer sound. However, I wore through the wrapping and got "fret bumps" pretty quick on these GHS strings. I recall going through Augustine nylons every 2-3 months when I was playing classical.
