i just got a fender strat, i was wondering what a good brand of strings are for it, i like ernie balls for my les paul and paul reed, would they be good for a strat or should i stick with the bullets, love that twangy strat sound dont want to lose it . thanks
ibanez rocks
Ernie Ball Slinky or GHS Boomers
Gear: Gibson SG standard EMG ZW pickups, vintage Acoustic combo, Boss ME-50, 12 string Ibanez.
DR (last longer, sounds better), bullets are crappy, they're getting rusty very fast and your tone goes off after couple of hours.
My Rig:

+Epiphone AJ100 acoustic
+Fender 60th. Anniversary Stratocaster
+Vox AD30VT
+Vox V847a Wah

look all i wanted was for someone to give me advice on what to do not to slag me off ok

Want advice? Suck yourself off.

My signature set of GHS Boomers!

or just regular 10's are good. That's what I use...

Definitely DRs. When I first tried the DRs a year ago, I never stopped using them. Quality strings. Cheaper too.

Yeah, I agree that the Fender bullets really suck. Used to have them on my strat, before I went through alot of changes, and finally stayed constant with DRs. Awesome strings.
