Hey everyone! Im going to be taking a survey for a presentation I have to give, so any feedback is helpful. Its simple, the poll is just on whether or not you have broken a guitar or bass string while playing, and if so, was it during a performance. Thanks!

Never broken an electric string.

Broken plenty acoustic strings.

Never performed.

Yes I was rude, and I was aggressive and I was offending a large group of people. But I was civlized about it.

I think the strings I got for my cuatro are very, very cheap because I've already busted 2 and I put way less hours on that thing than I do my electric and acoustic. I have popped a string on both of those before, too, though.

I break strings all the time. And definitely during shows.

Never broken strings
Barely ever change my strings
When I first started playing, I was using factory strings from a fake strat for 3 years without any problems

I almost never break strings from playing. Every time it has happened was because of me being an idiot and tuning too high by accident, or because a burr formed on the saddles or tuning peg.

I'm pretty good with strings overall. I don't sweat that much and I don't have acidic skin so strings for me last a long time. I change strings maybe 3 or 4 times a year when they finally wear out or start to feel gritty.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

I've broken the most while tuning up after changing strings. I may have broken one or two while playing. Never broken any live.
