I’ve been really like pure nickel strings on my LesPaul. Specifically, the Ernie Ball Rock n Rolls and GHS Nickel Rockers. GHS makes great strings in general.
+1I recently bought about 20 packs of all different brands of strings - Ernie Ball, D'Addario regular and NYXLs, DRs, GHS, Dean Markley, Gibson, the list goes on. Where I landed is that it almost makes no difference to me as long as the guages are consistent. I can't tell what brand is on what guitar (except for the colored balls on D'Addario, dead giveaway). If anything, I notice the biggest difference between hex and round core, regardless of brand.
I recently tried out some Gibson vintage reissue strings (10-46) and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at how much of a difference they made in terms of feel and tone - I’ve changed out all my strings on my LP’s & 335’s to them now - I would definitely recommend trying a set out.I've pretty much always had green Slinkys as my go to. What are some thoughts on a few different varieties of brands that I could tamper with. Speaking for my standard with BB1 and 2 pops.
I know this has prolly been beat to death but I just worked 13 hours in the rain in 40 degree weather and didnt feel like digging, plus you all can share your favorite brand
I'm trying a set of these. They're essentially a NYXL with a thin coating, but you cant feel it.If you want to try something different, try the DA NYXLs. They’re more expensive but worth it. They are acoustically louder and very punchy amplified. Last longer, almost as long as coated strings for me, They’re constructed differently than the regular DA XLs, which are old standbys for many.
