well i enjoy ernie balls (that looks really funny typed out) so try some regular slinky's i also recommend using S.I.T. (stay in tune) strings
both are great brands and i use 10's (light) from both brands but also try out a set of 9's(extra light)

If you're into down tuning and all that jazz i'd suggest 11's. Nice a beefy to get that extra 'chug'. Try D'Addario or Ernie Ball.
Gear:
Gibson Les Paul Custom
Epiphone EDS-1275
Epiphone Les Paul
Schecter C-1+
Peavey Delta Blues

slinkies are nice, and i'd definitely get some thicker strings to give your guitar that 'chug chug' that metal needs
kill 'em a lot

I currently use Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkies (top strings 9-11-16, bottom 26-36-46), but I'm going to get a set of Regular Slinkies next time around.
Tiger style.

if you're playing metal, you might want some strings with more steel in them.
power slinky's work great.

Erinie Ball!!

why are metal musicians prone to fatness?
Cause there music is heavy.


Writing music is hard D:
