Thread Name: rejuvenating old guitar strings.
Subject: RE: rejuvenating old guitar strings.
The 2 principal reasons for strings going dead (Not breaking) are !. Work hardening of the wrap, and core. The metal becomes brittle/crystallized. Annealing at very high temperatures is needed to reverse this..not practical. 2. Multitasking players (eating pizza while playing) will most certainly effect the tone. This can be dealt with by the various cleaning methods mentioned.
