I have used the search button and the infamous Google but could not find anything useful:

With the band I play in we use Drop B flat and Drop A tuning, and where the ernie ball Not Even Slinkys are great I want something a little heavier, was just wondering if anyone new any good sets of strings to use or any combination I can put together eg, top 3 of a 7 string set with some other strings...

Try buying a pack of strings for a 7 string guitar and just throw away lightest one.
gear
-Giablo JTM45
-Hook 2X12
-fender hw1 strat
-Fender AVRI 62 strat
#3
top 3 strings of ernie ball power slinkys are only 38 48 58
which isnt that much of a difference to ernie ball...
maybe try out the dunlop zakk wylde strings...
theyre 10 - 60.
I suggest buying a 7 string or buying a baritone guitar.

I mix my set. My thicker 3 strings are from a regular .010 set and my other strings are from a .009 set.

DR Tite fits are pretty nice, I use DR Tite Fit 9-42 personally, I used Ernie Ball Super Slinky's for awhile, those aren't to bad either

I guess fire extinguishers have to be filled with something other than fire retardant now, because apparently that's offensive.

Buy baritone sets (you’ll have order them from juststrings.com). And get a set of nut files to match, you’re going to need them. Right now I’m using a .13–.62 set, and with jumbo frets they play like butter.

I'm using a set of 13-65's for Drop C. I use Cleartone strings on that guitar. they're coated so they're gonna cost a bit more, but they're woth it, I haven't changed them yet and they still sound great.

Best string gauge, huh?


By far these:



I use them on all my guitars, and they work great!

But seriously,

Nah, I prefer to tune lower. My tunings usually go into weird Hebrew symbols.

Totally subjective.

I use boring 46-10s.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

So you would tune the 8/9th string to ש?

Awesome.

XDDD SIGGED.

Aaanyways, I don't know if you could use baritone strings on a 22-24 fret guitar, but I'd say you could, and they go up to .14-.68 so maybe get some of those?
