What strings work best for heavy floyd rose abuse? I need my strings to stay bright for a while and not snap when i dump and lift my trem bar.
I also need a recommendation for getting custom string packs, because the gauges I like aren't standard (10-56/58). I live in Michigan so GHS is just across the state, but I've had problems with snapping their strings in the past. Any suggestions?

i like elixers, very resilient strings that rarely break, look at 11, 12, or maybe even 13 gauge
obviously 10's would not be good for your style of play, and i'm assuming you'll probably be downtuning a lot

funny, i find GHS really suck for snapping too. i would go through some of them in a couple days. i emailed them about it and they sent me 4 packs for free. which all snapped too lol

I use the Dunlop Wylde Series and I've had them on my Razorback for about a month and a half and they still sound great.

I play in drop B but i prefer a loose top end, but i've had elixers on my acoustic but I didn't like them, how they played/sounded/felt.
What are the gauges on DRs drop set?

I might use .60 for recording just to get a tighter sound but i just don't get as much play on 'em as I want. Same reason I didn't get the Wylde strings. But how are DRs and Dunlop strings on trem abuse and string life?
And i had an odd problem with GHS- I could pull up on my FR all I wanted, but after a week of playing about 2 1/2 hours a day, if i ever dumped the bar and pulled up just a tad, the 5th string's (F# in drop B) outer wire would break and uncoil.

The Dimebag DRs handle abuse very well, that's what i used before i went to the Wylde strings.
