nickel 9's but may switch back to 10's it don't matter what kind of strings you use it is what you feel comfortable playing.If Jimmy Page were to use the cheapest lghtest strings out there,he would still be Jimmy Page and we woud still pay to see him.It's not what you use it's what you do with it!

I use D'addario 10 to 46, unless I can get a better deal on some Ernie Balls.

If there's a Dolphin Music anywhere near you they were doing Ernie Balls for around £4, or if not there seem to be good deals on ebay for a similar price, last time I looked.


I've been using EB hybrid slinkys (9s) but recently changed to regular slinkys (10s) and am finding them a bit better for me.

Snake Oils! Last forever and sound/feel great!

10-13-17-26-36-48 on PRS
11-14-18-28-38-50 on LPs usually in Eb.

I like the heavier low E in case I need to drop to D.

Who makes those colored strings, and also who makes some good .008s besides EB, and I dont need any your a pussy jokes for using .008s, I'll bet I can make em sound as good as any of you guys using heavier gauge's.

Musician's (worst) Friend usually has decent deals on D'Addario bulk sets. I think you get 25 sets for 99 bucks, or something like that. I usually just get the 10-paks myself, I think they're around 25 or 30 bucks.
