I'm looking for strings that give a warm, beautiful tone. I like to play songs by Sonata Arctica, Within Temptation, Metallica, Manowar, Blind Guardian, and Omnia. The songs are mostly metal ballads, but I also like to play some songs with distortion. Currently, I have a floyd rose-equipped guitar so changing strings will not be easy.
I recently changed from D'adario 10s to Ernie Ball 9s and noticed an immediate improvement in tone (not just new string sound). Much brighter and more distinct. Also no loss of volume despite the lighter gauge. Worth a try?
I pick up my guitar and play

well, string brand is all preference. it comes down to gauge. what tuning you going to be in MAINLY since you have a floyd.
