You could get $1000 custom made pickups hand wired with Eric Johnsons pubic hair, and they'd still sound pretty bad through a ****ty solid state practice amp.

Really? I thought Frontmans where highly respected around here?!

^Helpful replies guys .

It's all down to personal preference, but you can't go too far wrong with a set of D'Addario 10's.

I do believe so. I think heard it on TV once upon a time.

Edit: Wait, what the fuck was I watching on TV that had to do with ass hair?

prefer ernie ball hybrid slinky myself, give u that power on the lower strings but the higher strings r still slinky so u can rip out some sweet solos.

I wouldnt go any smaller than super slinkies, but ernie ball slinkies are great. go with some regular slinkies....or the hybrid slinkies.

I like Dean Markley 10-52s. They sound really nice, but I find they break quite often.

I used to play Slinkies, now I play D'Addarios.

Look, strings cost next to nothing, so grab a pack of slinkies, a pack if D'Add's, a pack of DR's etc etc and try them out till you find the right one.
