Always found them to be good - did they both snap in the same place?

Haven't noticed any change from their consistent high quality guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, and ukulele strings at all. I use scores of sets every year and haven't personally broken one in many years. Check your instrument.

Peace, Mooh.

I experienced a time when I pulled the balls off several Martin E strings. Perhaps just a bad batch? Bad QC certainly.

When you think about it, it is likely that the majority of packs that a shop has are from the same batch, packed and sold at the same time.
Try a different shop, and a complaint to d'Addario? They might replace, and would want to know, anyway.

I've used nothing but d'Addarios on my Framus for quite a few years.

Last time I had a string break, it was a B, which I had managed to kink while installing it.

Haven't lost an E in twenty five years at least, and I don't change them as often as I should.

They are expensive, but better tone and value than Martins. Of course that is on MY guitar. Others' mileage may vary.

Don T.
