    I know some feel that strings can carry some mojo. So, after 8 years of my Chromes being on my P I decided to get a set of LaBella 760FL’s.

    So, today I cleaned and added a small touch of BLO to the fretboard. You know make it nice for the new guys. Well I re-tuned the strings after I was done the the G string let go. Snapped at the tuner. I was disappointed because I wanted to keep them as a spare. Then I thought...these strings are mad at me. All the years of playing and having fun. I guess it was too much for them. Not to blame them totally but I did tune 1/2 step down a few times. That can make a difference yes?

    So I believe now that gear (strings) can carry mojo! How about you guys/gals?
  2. Strings don't get mad; they just get tired, worn and cranky... sort of like ME. ;):D

    Strings are not capable of anger. It was probably the tuner. Those things are loose cannons after a few drinks.

    Clearly an 8 year old string breaking proves the supernatural. Not that metal eventually fails where it's bent and put under tension.

    Gremlin 2. You obviously disturbed the Tuner Gremlins. Being awakened after 8 years does tend to make them... cranky...;)

    If your bass was seafoam green, it would have never happened.
