dude, how can you have all that gear and not know shite about strings. i always buy ernie balls. it's up to you if you have the money for an american strat then buy a few different brands and test them out. and don't ever ask a question like that again because it seems so strange that you would have such nice gear and have never bought strings. unless you are some millionare that want's to fufill his childhood dream of being freddie mucurey.
no offence

im asking cuz my string broke... didnt you read my post?

Yeah.. it was kinda confusing, I didn't know what order everything happened, if your string broke first before they put new strings or whatever. Anyways.... I like D'adderio or however it's spelled.

How can you afford to buy all that shit when you're so new? I won't judge you, as everyone else will, but you are quite blessed. Or foolish. Try DR strings. They're amazing. Tite-fit are pretty... tight. Hahahaha XD Seriously though. DR strings are pretty sexy. D'Addario blues strings are pretty good, as well. Try out a bunch. I've tried out all the strings that have any modicum of commercial success. It's fun! Try different guages, too.

D'Addrios are the bestest imo.
HEY
Do you like anime/manga?
PM me about buying the graphic novels I'm trying to sell

I just switched to DR after playing D'Addario for years. They nice and slippery and have a nice bright tight tone.

I definitely consider DRs to be the best (I personally use their tite-fit 11s on my Gibson Les Paul Classic). However, I use D'Addario 10s on my Fender Strat (that I rarely play, but they do the Fender clean tone better- I rarely ever play clean). So I feel the preference depends on the guitar.
