I've recently tried The Dean Markley Blue steel strings...they are pretty awesome



I've always liked mine, they feel more "elastic" than the ernie balls that everyone seems to use.

All you're going to get with asking that question is lots of posts from people telling you to use the same strings as they do. It's much better if you find a gauge and make of string that works for you.

For example - I generally play lighter gauge strings (9's on my Jackson and 10's on my Epiphone), because I like the slick, fast feel of light strings. Some people prefer thicker strings because they like to downtune or because they prefer the tone.

As for brands, each time you change strings for a while, use a different brand. Then you should get a feel for which ones you prefer.
