um, heavy ones. I use ones that are just above average. I'm in Drop C, and my low B string is in G.

Effects. It's all personal. I don't use any, just the knobs on my bass. It sounds great.

Nevermind, that's a stupid pun for Australian pyromaniacs.
Just forget I said anything.

I'm in C# standard and my low B string is in a G# so I run 35-135 on my 6 string and my 4 string ESP that's in C# as well I run 50-110. For my Ibby that I keep in standard I have 45-100

All of it depends on tuning mate. As for effects, my vote goes to none depending on your amp. I really like mine but I really want to add a compressor pedal to help even out my sound which is something I'd recommend if yours doesn't have one built in. If you really want to cover up your amps tone then a good overdrive pedal should do the trick
