So my low e string snapped on me the other day prolly cuz i never bother to change out my strings. Any way i put a new string on there but it sounds really weird the only way i can describe it is really mettalic almost like an acoustic string. But i know its not an acoustic string cuz its from a D'addario .009 electric pack. I just want to know if this is normal like maybe it takes some time to break in or something or if something is wrong. And im using a Gibson SG special if that helps at all.

thats how atring is supposed to sound.

when strings are not changed, they tend to lose their snappy sound.

i would suggest re stringing the whole guitar, so all the strings sound like they are new, plus, they will wear evenly. . .

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

It just sounds like a new string, and if the difference is extrememly noticeable then it means it's time to change the rest of the strings too....how old are they?

Restring the whole thing. You need to resting atleast once a month, every tw oweeks is better.
