I play mostly older metal such as Maiden, Priest, Ozzy etc... and I like D'Addario's myself. But it all in what you like and what works best for you. Try a few and go from there.

Definently Ernie Ball Super Slinkies. Look at the back of the package, it tells you who plays them. Few great ones include: John Petrucci, Kirk Hammett, James Hetfield etc.!

Ernie Balls lose their tone after maybe a week or two. Just remember that the "great ones" change strings at least once a show...so that really isn't a very good example.

I use D'Addario. They keep their tone for at least 3-4 months after I put them on. I also used GHS, I rather liked those as well.

Hey guys! I just started playing electric guitar should I get a Gabson Lay Pall or a Femdor Startokaster. I like the picks on the gabsons but i like how sweet femdors look. Beforre i get a gabson what company makes them?

I used to play Elixir strings, but I wasn't impressed with the feel of them. I now play D'Addario strings, and I prefer them over the EB's.

It's all about preference. No string is going to magically make you a better player, or make your guitar sound like your favourite band.

Well, Iron Maiden used D'Daddiros on the world slavery tour

Now, they apparently use EB's

But it doesn't really matter. whatever feels better on your fingers mate
