Dude/ettes, I just switched from D'addario to Reg Slinkys

The sound suddenly changed !!

My Tele suddenly went TWANGY !!!

ITS A HUMBUCKER !!! It's supposed to do that, isn't it ??

Not that I hate my new sound or anything, it's just I'm wonderin...... Does every brand sound different ??

****, now I sound like Petrucci !!
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

Ernie Balls get very twangy when you initially put them on. D'addarios are also somewhat darker.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

new strings are generally twangy, you could say.

in a week, that will have worn off.
my d'addarios are twang when they are new.

I know !!

Now I can't get a decent shred tone !!!

What should I get for a shred tone ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.

I'd say ghs. Zakk wylde uses them, and ihave some tha are on a sqiuer, have gunk on them, and are at least a couple months old that sound better than the ones on my showmaster. Yes, get ghs boomers.

Oh, well, yeah, them too. I had some once, they were pretty good, if i remember right, they were pretty good for drop tunings, maybe it was the guage, but they sounded good. I'm just a ghs fan, my walmart carries them too, so i can get them without going out of my way.
