hello everyone,
well the guitar i have is fender stratocaster copy ( chineese )
anyways, it sounded pretty good b4 i cut the E string and decided to buy a whol epack of new strings, i bought a fender one, ( medium ).. i dont know what the old ones where though or what size
anyways, ever since i installed them, they sound awfull, they're really loud, even louder than my acoutic one? and yeah the do sound a bit of acoutic.. it sounds really bad
and there's a hiss or noise sound too coming from the lower E string, which wasnt there b4 i put the new one

i dont know whats wrong here, any suggestions?
and please dont suggest using them for a while till they sound better coz i've been using them for like a month and a half now and nothing changes
( i play rock if that matters.. )

First, type out before, second, the word is acoustic.

I don't know how loud is bad. The hiss on the E is because the action is too low, most likely. That's probably what most other people here will say. Other than that, I don't see any problem.

the hiss is fret buzz, the strings hitting frets it's not supposed to

um.. ya i know it Acoustic lol
and well.. not its not a fret buzz, even if u play an open note it still makes a buzz
( told ya the buzz wasnt there b4 i put the new strings )

shred, i don't think it's a fret, because otherwise, u would find some crap happening on other string, down the neck as you're going to the high e. so i think it has to do with the strings

Fretbuzz comes from strings that are too close to the fretboard in sa certain spot
it's the strings fault, but it's called fretbuzz
raise the action some

Not necessarily. You can adjust each bridge saddle separately for each string. Just one being off doesn't mean more are. Adjust the bridge saddle for that string so it's higher up.

i can rasie the action but the strings are already abit far from the fret board at the bottom.. gonna have hard time playing solo's
#12
well yeah i think i can do that, but the strings them self still sounds awful =/
is it the brand?

If you bought medium strings those are most likely 10-46.
Your guitar probably had 9-42 strings on it before.
This could cause fret buzz.
You may have also bought stainless steel strings which are very loud and bright sounding.

It may also be the brand. I never have seen anything worth mentioning by Fender except the Cyclone. Van could be right too.

Not stainless steel = nickel
You don't have to buy light, but you should probably
set the guitar up for heavier ones if your going to buy heavier strings
