This concerns strings, so I thought I'd post it here.

What string gauge would be the best for playing in Eb standard?

it really depends on what kinda sound your going for, but as long is you get it set up for that gauge you should be fine

You can use .10 strings like me. I use Ernie Ball Regular Slinkies on my Jackson tuned in Eb and they are very good.

11's but you can go with 10's if you want it to feel lighter

10's are fine if you like light string, 10-52 if you want good rhythms and lighter high strings for soloing, or 11' for solely a tight, powerful rhythm.

Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
