I was just wondering which brand of electric strings you prefer. I haven't yet formed a preference.
i use the thicker gauge strings. longer sustain, louder sound, thicker sound. i like em so much better. d'addario is what i usually use. i hate ernie balls
I use .008 gauge and tune down to drop C tuning. 8s are also good for Floyd Rose dive bombs. That way, when they snap up and hit you in the face, it doesn't hurt like a .042 gauge. As for brands, I go to the guitar store and unwind the strings off of the floor model guitars when no one's looking. Those always seem to last and last!
"so did you do anything hardocore today?"

"yeah dude i went to the bathroom and pluged up the toilet like hardcore! water would not stop coming out of it! It was like eddie van halen was playing Eruption in my bathroom! If van halen was a toilet
I use DR extra light gauge. I don't like heavier gauges because they create too much tension in my picking, and I use DR because it's the only brand the area music store carries.
Fender pure nickel.

Gibsons vintage reissue .011, for that nice long sustain when i rock out a good blues solo.

D'addario 11-52. Perfect for my liking. Hate Ernie Balls. Big fan of Rotosound Roto Reds too, but prefer the .52 to the .48 low E. Chunkier for de-tuning.
I'm Liking my .010s now, GHS. They sound really good, not like ernie balls which are rather cheap. 'course, I got a great deal on them at 10 sets for $20 on clearance.

I started off with Ernie balls, then swapped to Daddarios after about 1 year and a half, then about 2 years later the shop had no Daddarios so I got Ernie balls and I think I might stick with those, not sure though.
