Should I change the strings on my instrument after I receive it?
Firstly, be careful tuning the instrument to pitch initially, since over-tuning is a common cause of string breakage.
The strings shipped with the instrument from the factory are usually of adequate quality, but they are a "standard" set, using "average" factory specifications and normal materials. Most players have or develop a preference to certain gauges and materials and many players automatically change the strings to their preferred brand as soon as they receive the instrument.
You may consider purchasing a new set of strings soon in any event, since the strings do wear out and a new and/or better quality of string will make a difference in the sound and ease of playing of the instrument.
