Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

they LAST longer as in, they can take more wear, but they'll still break if you stress them too much

and for returning them? no, they wont. they're used, broken strings, you dont get a warranty on strings. just buy a single string

GUITARS CURRENTLY USED
Ibanez RG7621
Ibanez RG121
ESP LTD H-400

they've already been bent and broken, why would you return them. and there's things on a guitar that can cause a string to break, its not always the string's brand's fault that it broke

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

a little side note, when i looked at the thread title quickly, i though the "ARGGGHH" was a tuning

Check out the makers website. They probably have instructions to get a replacement. They probably will want you to send the string back for them to evaluate then send you a new string. I broke a Super Slinky G string before it was in tune when it was installed. I put the old one back on. I eventually bought a new set (John Pearse) because I didn't like the sound of the Super Slinky's. I didn't think it was worth the effort, so I won't use that brand any more.

^lmfao what tuning have you ver seen an rr and h in lol
yeah i kinda figured i couldn't return them.I'm just kind of pissed because i don't get money too often and i don''t know of any places that sell single strings
#10
I have never tried coated strings, I like the feel of new strings so I don't know if I'd want to leave something on there so long anyway

That's the tuning of a new genre called RAGE-core. All you do is tune your guitar to th epoint it makes a continuous FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUU sound, thus drowning out all other members of the band.

lol @ returning broken strings. That's like trying to return a dead dog.

Coated strings are supposed to take more wear, but, and correct me if I'm wrong, because of the coating, the actual strings are actually a slightly smaller diameter (because the coating makes up the difference) and thus they actually break easier from stretching/bending related causes.

they don't take more wear per say. they are safe from corrosion from the oils of your skin plus dirt and shit getting in the wire and dulling their tone. as far as the strings being a smaller diameter, pretty sure they aren't. i could be wrong, but the coating isn't super thick. i have tried them on a friends guitar before and honestly they didn't make me wanna run out and get them. plus he replaces them just as often as d addarios. if you keep your strings clean and fret board clean your string swill last a while. mine don't go dull till about 4-5 months of playing and i play every day. the extra money for them doesnt seem worth it.
