I play lots of punk.

Misfits, Black Flag, Minor Threat
Pretty much anything that requires lots of
heavy/fast downpicking

I just need some reccomendations
on a good set of strings that will last me longer
then 3-4 songs with out 2 or more of my strings snapping on me.

If your strings only last that long either:

a) You're playing WAY too hard

b) You have points somewhere on the guitar's nut or bridge.


In the 6 or so years I've been playing, I've broken one string, and that wasn't even from playing, I overwound it.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

I find that DR's and GHS Boomers last pretty long in terms of just going bad over time, (but they're all I've tried). The GHS Boomers last at least 2 weeks for me and I play at least an hour a day. I just tried DR's for the first time about 2 weeks ago, and the same set is still holding up, but I can tell it is almost time for a change. If your strings are breaking, try a thicker gauge.

Yo Bob Dylan, I'm really happy for you an I'm gonna let you finish, but Jimi Hendrix had one of the best versions of All Along the Watchtower of all time!

GOOD GOD! you break strings every 3-4 songs? you must spend like $100 a week on strings....

you are struming too hard. Whenever you aren't playing, untune the strings 2 full turns. It keeps it from straining the stings and putting tension on the neck.
