I'm going to get some new guitar strings for my electric guitar soon. I'm not sure what to get though. Right now I have Dean Markley strings i think theya re the blue steel ones. They are a really thin guage though I think the box said they were 9s. I want something thicker though. I'm thinking about buying some Ernie Balls or something. Anyone have any suggestions?
i always go with elixirs, nice sound and last for a while, also if you want thicker then go up to 10's then if there still abit thin for you go up to 11's next time you need a new set. Hope this helps
The only way you can find out what strings you like is by trying as many different kinds as possible.
Be careful going up in gauges. A big jump in string gauge and you may have to re-setup your guitar.
Buy 10's if you want a thicker guage string. I use Rotosounds because they last for quite a while. When I used to use Ernie Balls, they would rust quite quickly, even though I did wipe them down after every use. But it's all about preference.
