ok, so i just bought a new amp from guitarcenter and i got a letter saying with my next purchase of 15$ or more i can get a free pair of strings. for my electric all ive ever used is slinkys but since im getting these free im wanting a nicer pair, so whats a good pack of strings that is bendy and smooth but lasts a good while?

D'addario's. I made the switch to them from Ernie Ball years ago for one reason, the airtight sealed wrapper the d'addario strings come in. Believe it or not, because Ernie Ball strings come in those little envelopes and are exposed to the air, a lot of their life is taken away from exposure to the air. By the time you put them on your guitar some rust could possibly already be forming, cutting their life by up to 15 or 20%. With D'addarios, you open the package, string your guitar, and you have truly brand new strings.

They dont give you whatever strings you want. I already had this problem. They give you the cheapest set of D'Addarios. The cheapest priced strings they have there. Even if another string is the same price, you cant get it. Thats why Guitar Center sucks.

The Elixers are good, but I'm finding the DR coated strings to last a bit longer...the only problem is with their colored coatings, they tend to flake off and cover the guitar, but the strings won't rust even without the color coating.

Get D'addrios they are the most energy efficient strings on the market. All of the pakaging is recyclable, and the balls on the end are color coded so you dont get confused, as to which string is which. They are also pretty nice strings.
