It depends on the frequency of use and quality of the strings, really. For me, I play 4-5 hours a week, and use steel plated strings @ $5.00 a set, which leads to breakage every 3-4 weeks, but only on the E or A strings. Thankfully, the e string costs like, 2/5ths of a dollar and the A, 3/5ths. I also tune/pizzicato a lot, so that can be a factor. At $40, you probably are buying high-grade strings already, so I suggest looking around at your local violin store. And btw, I use Fernando strings, so I guess that explains the price

I had the same trouble with mine, just delete the first domain name and save. I have read some WWII books about the Philippines, Bataan, Corrigador, Mindanao, The Battle of Leyte Gulf, McAurther wading ashore. Fascinating country.
Well Jaden, I hear ya on electric guitar strings I break them all the time. I've been playing guitar 30 plus years. I've been playing an entry level Cecilio violin for less than 2 weeks now as a beginner but have been practicing 4-8 hours every single day and I don't think you have to worry about breaking violin strings too often at all. Of course, unless you are experimenting with other tunings outside of GDAE.
Man I beat the hell out of my classical guitar playing Flamenco style and never break strings on that guitar. I use 3 nylon for the higher strings on that and 3 steel for the lower. What came with my violin was steel strings.
