I am just starting bass and I was told to restring my bass when I first got it (it is used). I bought some strings (Dean Markley Nickelsteel or something) and a tuner. I return home from the music store with my wallet $90 lighter only to find that the tuner I bought is crap and will not work. Everything was done according to the instructions, and nothing. It turns on but does not respond when the cord is plugged into it. If that wasn't enough to annoy me, tonight while I was going through a bass book I bought, one of the string (A) snapped. I'm guessing that they aren't supposed to do that after one day. The string were just tight enough to stay on, and it broke. Two things: Did I buy crap string to begin with? and Should I go to the music store and ask for my money back, or just buy new strings (making me ever poorer than I am)?
