ok, are the Fender (Pure nickel wound .. .008 to .038) good for hard rock and metal ?
i'd say too thin, may wanna test some 10s or 11s in my opinion
simple answer- no, they are too light, get something heavier like 10s, 11s or 12s
yeh what those two said ^^^
I passed from 008 to 009 some weeks ago. the 009 buzzes less, and is more confortable to play in my opinion
Thicker strings will get you the heavier tone for the music you play.
No you seriuosly need higher gauge. I (like always) wopuld recommend ernie balls-they are the best in my opinion. And get 10-46 regulars or the powers (11-48) They'll work a treat trust.
