My high E string broke once and due to an error on my part I replaced it with a heavier gauge than the rest of the strings. I have grown accustomed to it so I'm thinking doing this again when I'm going to replace the strings soon.

I was wondering if anyone else did this and for what purpose.

The main reason for string guage change is feel, I started off on 9-42's and now I play 10-60's I like the feel of them and they seem to add some low end and output to my tone. Of course I could just be experiencing the placebo effect.

the answer is whatever works best for you.

i used 10's for a long time, but switched to 11's four or five years ago.

whatever feels best. some times preference changes with time.

I play with Ernie skinny top & heavy bottoms. I prefer higher tension on the bottom strings because of the type of music I play.
