Yea I need some suggestions for a good brand of strings Im going to use heavy gauge but
anyone have any idea which brand is the best for Technical Death metal?
I've thought about trying out the new ernie ball titanium strings

brand really isnt as important as gauge

and id reccomend really heavy strings for death metal

There is no "best" brand of strings, everybody has their own taste so you'll just have to try out different strings and see which ones you like.

DR strings last the longest by far

and it depends on what gauge too, strings usually dont matter besides gauge, if you dont care about how often they snap then all strings are the same. all .9's will feel like .9's all .14's will feel like .14's and so fourth

This is amazing, a string thread and everyone's saying that it's preference for once. +1 to everyone.

Try as many brands as you wish and decide what you like, strings are cheap so it doesn't matter if you go through some duds.

well will .13's be sufficient for tuning down to c standard and how many more springs do i need cause i got a locking tremolo guitar.
well DR's are gonna sound better then some cheap walmart strings.

You might just be able to tighten the springs and be ok.

No brand is better than the other, it's all preference, applies to pretty much everything.

I personally am fond of those D'Addario 11 gauges, but that's just personally.

I do drop C on D'Addario 12's. But my other guitarist manages on either .9s or .10s... too soft for me.

+1 All strings are the same, just the gauge and package is different.

i like 10-52 for drop c. i love DR's. just bought a pack of tite-fit, uh the purple one. the high brite or something like that? or tite brite? im not sure. freakin love it. i have 10-50 tite-fits too. they last damn forever. feels like new strings for at least a month or two. i used to use ernie balls for tone, but quality-wise, they are suckish
