Try .10s, they'll give you that tone you're looking for.

I think the majority of the pro's use 9's, don't they?



depends what genre you're talking about, you metal heads and trashers usely play those hair thin strings. i'd be afraid of breaking them all the time. most blues guys and alot punk play heavier. kurt cobain was know to use piano strings cuz regular guitar strings wasn't thick enough for him

Well it probably would work but you'd more than likely have a bit of string buzz, tuning problems and the like.

What I found hilarious(seriously, it had me turning red from laughing so hard) was that Resi actually appeared and aswered the question, and within the hour.

Petrucci uses .9s, I think Yngwie and maybe Joe Stump use .8s.

#23
I thought vai used hybrids at least that's what i use: 0.9 on e,b,g-strings and 3 strings from 0.10 on the d,a,e strings to give the chords a thicker sound but still have bending advantage

I read somewhere that he used .09s for recordig and .10s for touring 'cos they last longer'.
Can't remember where though.

^ actually, i have the Resi signal saved for future use, the flattery was sincere.

Thank you though, no doubt someone will flick the FP signal whenever someone mentions the word "anchor" in the distant future...
#27
I also saved the Resi Signal, for I feel we will always need it.

....Plus, it focking worked. I still can't believe that.
