I don't think so.

Ernie Ball Power Slinky
If it's creative, true to your musical goal, and it sounds good, put it in the song.

1. Guitar, delay, verb, amp, and creativity.
2. Well-tuned acoustic piano and creativity.
3. A bottle of water.

Ernie Ball beefy or heavy bottom

I use Elixer strings....i dont know why, but i would pick them over any brand any day



People either love elixers or hate them. I know many people that can't use anything else, but the annoying sound that it makes when you move your fingers along the string is alot more prominent in elixers. Other than that, I think their decent. Not $15 decent though.....

D'addarios!! I use them. Good, but overrated.

I use ernie ball heavy bottoms for drop D and i use a custom ernie ball set 11-56.
i have also used dunlop heavy core string had a lot more note articulation but the sound didn't last as long as the ernie balls and they don't make a gauge bigger than 52...

I used to use DR or Curt Mangan because Curt's a stand-up guy. Now, either D'addario or Ernie Ball.

Is there a purpose behind this exercise? I'm sure a string brand strawpoll has been done to death and then some.

Your other options is missing, so I can't select it. I use Auroras

Dunlop because I got them for free and they're good strings. I a;ways liked D'Addario before that and liked them too.

But theres no reason why i cant be free like a raspberry stuck to the back of a horny elephants ass.

This is maybe the worst comparison in the history of comparisons.

On my electric I use medium GHS Boomers and on acoustics I like medium Elixers.

Ernie Ball Regular Slinkies.
