I started off using GHS Gus Series (aka Nickel Rockers) but when they got harder to find, I moved to EB Regular Slinkys 10-46. They sounded close to the GHS and seemed to last a long time.
A couple years ago I sent in one of my guitars for a fret job and loved how it felt, sounded and played when returned. I asked about the strings he put on it and he told me GHS Boomers 10-46. They are brighter than EBs and the wound strings feel rougher under my fingers but they are lasting for me and their brighter tone is working better with the darker sounding amps I have been playing.
I used ernie ball slinky 10s for many years but decided to change last year.
I put a set of pure nickel DR 10/52s on my les paul, thomastik 10s on my 339 and pyramid pure nickel 11/48 on my Stratocaster.
I won't be going to back to nickel plated hex core ever again.
I'll soon size up to 11s on my les paul.
I really suggest trying pure nickel round core.
I'm actually sorry I didn't try them out earlier.
I also encourage you to try out different size, shape and material guitar picks.
I had been using 9s, 9.5s and 10s on various guitars. 10s on the LP Classic. I bought a used LP 50s Standard and it came with 9s and a horrible setup. Had it setup with 10s and after playing it for a short while I took the 10s off and put 9s back on. Doubtful I’ll go back to 10s as I can’t hear the difference.
D’addario xl 10-46. Used to be the 10-52s but since im not gigging I can relax a little bit haha. My sweat corrodes strings fairly quick and i’d get one maybe two practices out of EB. Briefly had a curt mangan deal and those were comparable to d’addario.
