A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a close-minded moron.

Ernie Ball hybrid slinky 9-46. I tried d'addarios, and they rattled too much. I also tried Dean Markley blue steel. They were good but they broke too fast ...
#16
I used to use D'addarios, but after I tried GHS, I'm using them from now on. Hold up and play much better than the D'addarios, in my opinion. I use 11- 50's.
#19
am i missing something? they're just strings. they can't be THAT much different from one to another. why do you prefer one brand or not? i understand how gague makes a difference. i've read that earnie balls don't work well with a Rose and others work better. if you have more than 1 guitar why do you use different brand strings?

REMEMBER... i'm a total re-noob
#20
Currently I use D'Addario 10's on my electric...I'm looking to try some Ernie Ball Slinkies though.

And my acoustic still has the stock strings on it. They need changed. BAD.
My Gear:

Washburn D10s Acoustic
Marshall MG100HDFXR Special Edition
