Depends on what you play musically. If you play metal, tru the ernie ball skinny top heavy bottom. I pay with the hybrid slinky myself.

I am about to try DR's for the first time. I hope they are worth their hype.

Otherwise I like my Blue Steel's and my Beefy Slinky's.

I use them, they are. The roundcore tite-fits trump all for electric, and recently I've gotten my hands on the sunbeam roundcore acoustic strings, but too early to pass judgment there.

.11 GHS Boomers.

Most comfortable and best sounding strings I have ever used.

But they do wear out kind of fast. They last about a month with 2 - 3 hours of play a day, which, you should be replacing your strings that often anyway, so it doesn't matter much.


They use an Allow core instead of nickle or copper.

DR Tite-Fits
I current have MT-10's on both electric guitars.

I also have D'Addario EJ16 on my acoustic.

The DR's are really great strings with tone, feel, and quality considered.
The D'Addario are a little less comfortable, but give me the best tone and last a good while.

I bought some of those a while ago but never got to put them on my axe. I love my Ernie Ball .10s, but I wanted some strings with more beef and low end, as I play rhythm guitar. Long story short, I didn't feel like going to 11s not knowing if I would like them or not, and they are still in my case...
