Re: breaking high e string record :P DAddario set

Once few years ago, right after string change my high e broke when tuning it. Sometimes it just happens even if theres nothing wrong with the guitar. It has happened to me a few times with different guitars.

When putting on a new set it's good to stretch them some but the high e is the most vulnerable to breaking right then and there and it's happened a couple of times over the decades.

Re: breaking high e string record :P DAddario set

It's been decades since the last time I broke a string during playing, can't barely remember it anymore.
But last year I broke an high E string during tuning, it happened most likely because of bad tuning machine ( cheap gotoh copy china made ) that needs a lot of power to turn that damn thing.
