I wouldnt say for different genres of music, but you should definitely find strings that suit what you like.

You should just try a lot of different gauges and see what you prefer.

Heavier strings give a heavier tone, but lighter strings enable you to go faster. It's all down to opinion.

exactly why i use DR Dime High Voltage

they got heavy low strings for the heavier sound and light high strings for speed. definately recommend them to anyone who wants a heavy sound AND speed.

Wound strings. Basically the EAD in every pack, sometimes the G.
