I bought 9 gauge d'addarios for my Ibanez RG321MH, its my first news string set, Im not sure what gauge my stock strings are. Do you think that 9 gauge is good for maiden and megadeth style music?

Thanks

String size is so miniscule within the overall tone that it really doesn't matter what size you use for a particular genre, just whatever is comfortable for you.

I would say hybrids are good for metal. The best IMO.

Thick bottom end for chunky riffs but loose at the top for widdling.

if you have a floyd rose use 10 gauge. They play better and are stronger in order to keep the bridge parallel with the body. otherwise it really doesnt matter. Reeeaaaally. You get better sustain...by a nanosecond... with a fuller string, but you get better pliability with a lighter string. If you are still playing in your bedroom while you are watching tv. it really doesnt matter. Thread resolved.
