He said he snapped an E string. You said you snapped an E string. What I asked was why it would snap. The center core wire has to break for the snap to occur. I thought the bend would be less severe with the thicker wraps making it less likely. He did not answer the question. I understand that he may not know why it would snap, just that it did. That however could be because of something done while installing the string. If that's the case you could use long scale strings taking precautions. I personally have used long scale strings on my short scale basses. I've had string sets on my long scale basses that have had the speaking portion of the string wrapped around the post with no problems. Yes it's best to use the correct scale string for your bass ( not to mention easier to install). When you have a bass like a Hofner violin, you have an extremely limited selection of strings. Which brings me back to "Why".

No, he is not! He’s a wealth of knowledge and took the time to post an explanation. He is correct, as I, too, have snapped an E string as described.

Thanks. Oh, BTW - I play bass at the private parties hatch mentions. Have for 45+ years. Including many years of when my 4002 was my only bass, and a 4001 before that.
