new string broke

  1. I bought a new set of d'addarios rounds yesterday, those are wonderful strings but when a put them on the D string broke as soon as I tuned it . Is there anything I can do like writing to the company, I heard that d'addario might change it but is it true or will I have to live with it and keep my old D.

    uh... i havn't known new strings to break right away, my record is 2 weeks.

    except when i tried to put my A string and tune it to a D, that one broke real quick.

    Are you sure u didn't do that, because if you didn't, I'd be right mad and would buy those strings anymore. I don't think they'd replace them for you.

    their website says they will replace it if returned with the packaging - I broke a new EXL .130" B string yesterday - if they replace it they will be really winning over my business -
    a great policy if they come through on this !
