Every show my band has I am always paranoid that one of my strings is going to snap mid show and cause a delay. So I always get new strings for each show to be sure they wont break. Typically it is the Low E string that breaks over the bridge. Now the more shows that get set up more frequently, I do not want to be spending so much money on bass strings so often. Is there any way to tell if a string is about to break by looking or feeling the string?
