i have thought about changing string brands i use ghs at the moment
but im not changing type or gauge just brand .


do any of you think that there is a real difference in mfg making
the same type of string ?

It all depends on where they come from, the purity of the metals they use and how quickly they oxidize. I used to use ghs and had no real problem with them until I tried different brands. Then I realized that tey didn't last as long in my environment as some others. I really like Dean Markely Blue steels. I currntly use 9-42s on my LP. I used the green slinkys for a long time as well and still use them on my LTD with the liscensed floyd. I do think there is a difference if you get picky about it. As you can see I still use relatively inexpensive strings because I refuse to buy elixers or similar although they keep their brightness longer. Try DR strings as well. I'd buy these more often but no one carries them close to me.

i thought about giving those elixers a try but there 3x the money really dont seem worth
it when you can buy 3 sets to there 1.

yeah, exactly! I have tried them and they are not worth it. Not really the tone I was looking for either. I also don't care for fender brand strings and gibson brand strings. They seem very cheap(price and quality)

I have tried Rotosounds a couple of times and been routinely disappointed in them and the (lack of) longevity. I was lucky to get five or six hours play out of them.

I have always gone with Ernie Ball's Slinkys - gauge depends on what guitar they are, or D'addarrio for 13s as they are the only strings I can readily find around here.
It's an opinion. It's subjective. And I'm right, anyway.
