I wanna know. What kind of strings do you use? I've also included extra options, since I'd also like to know what percentage of you have a Floyd Rose, and what strings you use. To the moderators: "This poll is a learning experience for me. It'll help me make some important decisions."

I use Ernie Ball .9's, on one or two guitars, and .10's on most of my guitars... I have no idea what's on my bass, or my acoustic guitar. I have a nice mix on my acoustic, since I had to use some spares... I think the high E is like, .11 or something...

My electrics have D'addario XL 11 gauge, one with a wound G, one with a plain G. My acoustic has Peavey phoshor bronze-wound balanced 12-string strings.

I use DR strings, they've served me pretty well so far.
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

I use a set of custom taylored strings, biatch. (.015-.070)

Otherwise D'addario's for the .013s (oh the <3)
or Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottom (.011-.056) [argh, the top strings are too thin! help!]

or Elixir .012s if I can find them and I am feeling affectionate, or my callouses are so damn thick that I can put my fingers on a hot stove for 3 minutes without feeling any pain.

No Floyd. GHS 10s, D'addario 9s, Elixir 12s (acoustic), Martin 13s (acoustic), and Dean Markley 10s.

i have a floyd on my jackson and i use d'addario xl 10's. i have 12's on my fender acoustic, still stock, after 10 months... i change strings too often on my electric so i save money by not buying strings for acoustic.
#19
I use Lights or Ultra Lights. Usually elixers, but the cheapest at the shop if Im short on cash.

I use Ernie Balls AND D'Addario's. They are both delicious. Gauges are all your opinion.



yeah I use those strings I use either 10's or 11's
#22
D'Addarios 10's ... Once played a 9 set, but it feels like with every bend it would snap. Never played any other brand though...

D'addario's without a Floyd Rose. Although, my new guitar will have a FR, and I will use the same strings.

GHS Sub-Zero Boomer's 10's they were recommended by a fellow guitarist, they're alright but, I'm going to go back to Ernie Ball RnR when they need to be changed.
#33
with a floyd i use either d'adarios or SIT, and i use .009s so i can do massive bends and stuff

and to the guy above, light strings do not make people a pussy you idiot they just give a different tone which is made up for by the fact that you can fret the notes cleaner and have more tonal variety due to the easier bending and vibrato ability

and dont fuckin say "if you had stonger fingers you pussy youd be able to do that with 13s anyway" or whatever because imagine if you could how much more youd be able to do on 9s again.

i use .13s on my schecter, i think that skinny strings are for pussies


Umm... 99% of heavy metal guitarists aren't pussies, therefore, that isn't accurate.
Tell Van Halen and Metallica that... Do any of them use .13's? I don' think so.
Yes, I happen to know that I'm a smartass. If anybody reads signatures, this guy is gonna have "mangled johnny" if he insults all of the famous guitarist's out there by calling them pussies.

How about this. Call them pussies when you can outplay them. All of them.
There you go.
