I broke my brother's high E string and he wants a new string, while I say he should get a new set.

his argument is that the string are flatwound .12 guage strings and they are a month old.

my argument is that while the new string ages, the other strings will age, making the old strings eventually sound like ****, but the new string not as much and the guitar will sound ****ed.

You're right. Get the whole new set so they all age at the same time. I try to keep my strings until there is a break but a month of constant playing sounds like time for a new set anyway.

Fender Twin amp
Peavey Rage 158 practice amp

Get him a new set. If he doesn't want a new set, just let him be, he'll realize later that he should have gotten the set.

But if you play it, shove him in a closet while you put a new set on.

oh, and the reason for this thread is that we were in an argument about it and I wanted to settle it by asking people who know more about music than him or I.

i generally keep two or three spare sets with me, and once one string goes, the whole set comes out. sure, its a little more pricey, but it's usually the high e string that goes, right? so if you're already buying a new set for that high e, then it comes out to cost the same anyway. sometimes, if im not gigging or anything for a while, i'll be cheap and not bother with the new set. but if you're showing other people what you're made of, you want to be playing on the best stuff
