that's the only explanation!

normally when you break a string it's the little E string... or the B string... or maybe the G string....

But I broke the fucking A string! How the hell is that possible? Has anyone else broken a big string like that?

come to think of it it I tink a is the one string i've never popped. Though I have broken one bass string before

i only break the E's. But i do know a bassist friend of mine breaking his thick E string. I always thought he was just jerking my chain
#13

-raises hand-
Has broken a Low B on a 5-string bass.

But my dad used to work with this 17 year old bassist who would go through like, 6 or 7 strings a night. And he played a 6-string bass.....

I know a slap pop bassist (not you sean) who breaks his strings all the time, and I mean all of them.

I break my Low E and A more then my higher strings, I put more abuse to those two.

My mate snapped the E on his bass once, and like, destroyed the front of his fridge.
