Maybe the age of the strings? How old were they? Plus yeah that's happened to me before a few times when downtuning

Ok then that's slightly weird lol after only 1 month. D'addario strings for the win! I prefer them to ernie ball and elixir strings.

Yes, the general consensus is that Elixir and Ernie Ball strings are awesome.

Btw, heavier strings last longer I believe.

You would've done it too quickly.
Strings are under higher pressure when stretched quickly apposed to slowly.
Signatures are overrated.

Could be the saddles that are too sharp. Where did the string snap?
It could just have been a bad string too.

The windings on the tuner can get weakened by metal fatique when you wind/unwind it.. that's probably why it snapped.
