    one is shorter than the rest? I just picked up another set of Ken Smith Metal Masters and the E string was about 2 inches shorter than the others so that the silk wrap on the end is in the nut slot. :mad: The others have another 2 inches of so of useable string length before the wrap starts. I have a few others sets of these on other basses and they aren't like this... I emailed Ken Smith and asked for a replacement E.....

    Where did you buy the strings from? It's usually best to talk to them first.
  3. :cool: I've bought defective sets in the past. D'Addario and Fender are the two that come to mind. The Fender set I took back to the store where I bought them and exchanged them. The D'Addario sets I had purchased mail-order so I contacted D'Addario. They replaced them. I think most string companies will stand behind their products, and most stores do too.

    I bought strings once that had a bowling ball in one of the packages, instead of an E string. I exchanged them as soon as I found out.
