I play really hard, but i just put these strings on LAST WEEK and i already broke the high e and b. Maybe it has to do with my tuning? im tuned to Db open Db Ab Db F Ab Db. I've already filed down my saddles and nuts...lol. what could it be?

Calm down while playing?

Try thicker gauge strings, learn to control how hard you're playing, make sure there are no sharp bits anywhere on your guitar near the strings. Also, if you're using a metal pick or a penny, that might make a difference.

How about the nut and machine heads?

Maybe give them a higher guage aswell, but I'd only really do that if the strings feel too slack.

But check the nut and tuners, incase there's something wrong.

Chances are, you're strumming wrong.

People play "really hard" all the time, without having taken all of your precautions (filing down bridge, saddle, etc) and rarely break strings.

im not changing the way i play. i think im gonna need a hardware upgrade that can handle my playing.
#11
Enjoy the bills for new strings then.
Just adapt the way you play to something less violent.

Well, right now you're not playing very effectively, are you?

It's not changing, but learning and developing as a player. If someone were to show you that you can play a lick two times faster by using a certain fingering, would you say "No, screw you, I'm not gonna change, I'm gonna keep playing it slowly" No. You would (hopefully) take the guys advice and be able to play that much better for it.

This is the same sort of deal.

get the heaviest strings known to man. THEN they wont break as often
#14
Tell me something son, if your amplifier is louder, do you need to pluck harder?
blame amp or the pick.
Digital Distribution sucks.
#15
where are the strings breaking? maybe you have a sharp edge on your tuning pegs or something.

#19
im done with this forum to many retards in it. thanks to the people who did try and help though. im gonna check my tuning pegs and maybe get heavier gauge hardware.

I can tell how you are playing.

Badly.

Playing cleanly > making stupid noise
Grow up and listen to constructive advice instead of ignoring it.
