does having two different brands of strings on one guitar make any difference at all to anything?

As long as they are the same guage you shouldnt notice any difference.

I say always go with all DR's!!! Purple box is the 9 guage.

If u restring one string than go ahead and do the rest

depending on the packaging some strings have a wayyy different feel from other brands. D'Addarios for example have a less "sticky" feel than say that of GHS or Ernie Ball. guage is the real most noticeable diff. thought.

To me, D'adds and Ernie Balls are totally different even though they're at the same gauge. I prefer Ernie Balls, easier everything, pinch harmonics, my fingers doesnt get stuck, etc.

Of course, to some it may differ, its total preference, try a whole bunch and set your strings/gauge of choice.
