In a studio session I change before we start, and most often halfway through too. I can absolutely hear the difference in the strings from the first take to, say the forth take. Being accustomed to playing freshy's makes playing fading strings unbearable. On the otherhand if my guitar is sitting around the house I can play it for some time without it bothering me, but not through an amp. Like many things with guitars; if your getting by without it, you don't need it.
Wow. Hobby players like me appreciate hearing from you pros, thanks. Just need to understand what you are saying Ezra, you change strings in the middle of a session and you get the strings to settle(stretch) enough to stay reliably in tune afterwards? Cat you do this too? Now I've heard people say to pull up on the strings to stretch em, but my guitar still needs to sit 2-3 days
