So, my A string snapped last Saturday and as a result I re-strung it with one of my spare strings. I should note that at this point, after tuning it, the sound was coming out a little strange (or foreign) from this string. I thought it could be since I just strung it on so I didn't take any notice.
Today, this string snapped while I was tuning it. It went out of tune to even go lower than the D string. I tried re-stringing with another spare I had at hand, but this snapped also while tuning it.
Both of these strings were of the same brand.
I am unable to buy another string right now. Will I damage my violin if I leave it with 3 strings (G-D-E) until I go buy another A string or set?
So far I haven't found any web page with a definite answer, which is why I'm asking here
(Also, if anyone wants to comment below and say maybe as to why this happened (bad tuning skills, brand of strings, other reasons?) please do so)
UPDATE 1: When tuning I use a tuner. I'm still in Grade 1 and I don't have perfect pitch, so tuning by ear is out of the question.
UPDATE 2: I have changed strings before and none had given me such a problem.
