As my guitarist friend is always snapping the high E string ( and the D string for some reason ) I was wondering if it's possible to buy a string pack with 5 or 6 same strings ( like 6 * E string ) ?

I am asking this because I know that some manufacturers produce packs with a single string, but that's not really economical ( a fancy way to say it's too expensive and I wanna have them by hand whenever I need them ).


It can be a pack with X * the same string or the strings can be for the same not but different ( like a super slinky E, a really slinky E and a not at all slinky E ) , I don't really mind.

Is he using cheap strings? I've never broken a string once I started using the" expensive" ones (you know... like $6 a pack). I think better strings and/or some improvement to technique and u might not have a problem anymore.

D'Addario does; I only break A strings and it helps me.

if it happens regularly look for a burr in the saddle or sharp spot at the tuner. or even the nut. also try a tiny bit of graphite in the nut, good thing to do in general.

where is it breaking at?

I know on Amazon, a single is something like $4.99. As much or almost as much as a complete set. Makes more sense to just buy in bulk 6-string sets, honestly.

And to fix that snapping issue, rather than ignoring it.

Making me realize I've been paying out the ass by buying strings through Amazon.

Thanks! And sorry for the thread-jacking.

i don't change strings often like semiannually and they aren't rusted or anything, but my packs kept getting butchered. most times i change there is a break.

Thank you all for your answers.

I will look for the possible causes of the string breakage, too!
