Takin' her in for a set-up tomorrow and figured I might as well grab some new strings while I'm at it. I play pretty much blues and classic rock and some newer stuff. Recommendations?

Thanks

Personally, i believe that Ernie Ball slinkys have a nice, warm tone that suits what your describing. You really can't go wrong with most strings though, so feel free to experiment and play around with different kinds.

Well, a lot of famous Blues and classic rock guys use Ernie Ball slinkies. I use them too and they nail tones easily.

By your name, I'll let you know, Stevie Ray Vaughan used GHS .13's (occasionally .11's), Hendrix used Ernie Balls? .09's and Clapton uses Ernie Ball .10's and sometimes .09's. I use strings ranging from .08-.10 and I like the same stuff as you.

Ernie's are a safe choice, but try a few different sizes and find what fits you best. Also don't buy into this tone bull**** every company promise's tone, but tone comes from the player, the gear only accentuates the player.
