I'm guessing you had to replace your nut for that?

10s on my acou, 12s on my old crappy Squier, and the kind of cheap nines you get on new Fenders on my Strat. Gonna get it set up for 13s soon though.

i got 12s. They didn't have any 13s at the music store. Where do you people get these heavy strings? i've never seen more than 13s.

amazingdm: Higher gauges aren't only for metal. They have a naturaly thicker and fuller sound than lighter gauges which can be used for just about anything.
For example, SRV was known for using very heavy gauges, I think he stopped after a while though, callouses not strong enough and such or so I've heard

Anyway, I have 11s on my dinky and 12s on my RR.

^^ I think I read that SRV's tendons were actually starting to go bad, 'coz he played so damn hard on such heavy strings so often, so he had to change. The heaviest strings he used were 16s, I believe.

i use 10's on everything

SRV used 18's at one time but he said he was playing simple stuff at that point.
#22
Meh. I read he used from 13s to 16s. The only pro I read of who used 18s was Dick Dale, but then I'm no expert on string guages of famous guitarists...

i don't know much about dick dale but srv also had another guitar (i think it might have been "lenny") which had 10's on it. but the 18's were not used very much just for what he called "simple playing" but whats simple for him might give the average guitarist a hard time.
#26
i use 11's on my strat and 12's on my les paul and tele

Hahahaha... hillariously retarded. Do they even sell those anywhere? I'm so weak, I can't even to a full bend on 13's.

I keep it simple. 10's on the squire, 11's on the beastly schecter, 13's on the wimpy acoustic.

hey guys,
i was wondering if when your strings start to get abit old if the make like a buzzing sound (it only buzzes on a couple of frets for example: 16 buzzes but 18th is fine)
#35
SRV used 17s...

I use 9s...great for shred. I tried 11s once, couldn't sweep em'...
Ibanez Prestige RG1570 ftw!
#36
9 or 10 to 46. Thinking about giving Zakk Boomers a shot, my Strat needs more tension.

Quote by amazingdm
