I've got Beef Slinkys on my BC Rich which is tuned to drop C and Regular slinky on my Ibanez which is in standard tuning.
Dave Mustain has wrote some of the most amazing solos...
That he can't actually play!

D'addario 12's. Thats where it's at.

there could be a handful of stoners somewhere in Jersey that are on the verge of creating a new metal...a new thrash metal...

I use DR TITE-FIT JH-10 strings which are 10-14-18-32-44-56. They're like the Skinny Top Heavy Bottoms but they go thicker. I used to use Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Ernie Ball's but they died really fast for me.

i use 9-42 elixer nanoweb antirust on my dean FBD ML, and 10-46 on my ltd ex-400 (mainly for downtuning, hence the slightly thicker guage)

this question always seems to generate a lot of disagreement. personally i once tried ernie balls on my strat and for me the tone was totally killed, all of the fender twang and cluck was missing.

the only strings i use now are fender 10 - 46.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

Ernie Ball Super Slinkies, although, really depends on the type of metal you're playing....

Depends on my mood of buying strings...

If I want a little more tone but sacrifice the life of the string then I'd go for
an Ernie Ball RPS9 Super Slinkies, but right now I'm on a tight budget so I'm
using D'Addario XL .9s...

I use GHS Boomers 10-46. They do the best for me.
