I just replaced my A (#2) string on my Schecter Diamond Series electric guitar, and I tuned it, it all went smoothly, and then the string rings a lot. I kinda sounds as if I'm not fretting it right, but I am, and it still has a gritty, metallic ring. It does have the right note. It is 32 gauge string, I believe. Anyone help me?

give your strings a good stretch before you put them on, just a general tip for you.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.

If you put a new string on with really old strings it will sound brighter and more metallic.

Ledroses: How?
Daddytwofoot: 'Tis
uldhppi: Is it really that dramatic that is sounds bad? I have had the bottom string and middle D string on since I bought the guitar (in April I think)

thanks a ton for your help. help yourself to some cookies

New strings sound brighter and more metallic, old strings sound duller and more organic. Stretch it out and break it in for a day or so and they'll lose some of that metallic flavor. Of course in order to maintain a consistent tone, you should probably go ahead and change the rest of the strings.

You have one new string and 5 old, crappy strings...if your strings are more than a couple of months old you should always change the whole set if you break one.

Do u mean you're getting fret-buzz?


It sounds kinda like fret buzz, but it's not. I checked and made sure its not rubbing anywhere. I did stretch it out some and played with it for a while and it sounds a little better, still noticeable. I guess it'll break in though

And, the sound doesnt come through my amplifier, so it's not a big deal, just annoying

This just in: It is buzz, not tone. it just happens on and off, like fret buzz, just adds to the confusion

thanks again

It's not fret buzz, it's just that it's a new string so sounds much brighter and louder than the older, dead-sounding strings.

It sure sounds like buzzing to me, but I don't want to replace all of my strings because I'm flat broke. If I busted another string, I'd be done until I can get some money

EDIT:: I guess it stretched out and it sounds fine now. Thanks a lot!
