Rocksmith & broken strings



Anyone else have this problem? I go through bass strings like crazy playing Rocksmith. Tuning up and down so wildly seems to work the smaller strings over the peg so often that they eventually snap at the peg. For a while I would tune to a particular tuning and play only those songs but sooner or later I get bored and start tuning down for metal and then back up for rock and pretty soon I'm buying another set of strings.

If it snaps at the peg, it's the peg that is too sharp which cut the string up, it's not something that should happen often at all...


As for strings set, always have a few spare available, you never know when you might need it.

Amazon is your friend when it comes tho strings I try to have one to two sets on backup. But I know what you mean about breaking strings with tuning I have never tuned to other keys as much there's just so many good songs.
