The metal kind. Honestly, strings make as much difference on your tone as the shirt you're wearing that day.

Nickel wound strings, definately.

Do not listen to that guy, strings actually do make quite a bit of sound difference. If this was not true, then certain players (such as SRV) would not prefer a thicker, better sounding string. I know Zakk Wylde, and Megadeath use GHS bloomers.

there's a difference between the BRAND of string and the GUAGE of string. Threadstarter was asking about brands, as far as I can tell. Either way, the tonal difference between .10s and .13s are a lot less than they're made out to be.

He said "kinda" that doesnt mean brand specifically.

It does, but he's a heckuva lot better off using a gauge that he's comfortable with than a gauge that might make him sound just a little bit fatter, but will turn his playing to ****.

1. Zakk Wylde uses Dunlops.
2. It's Megadeth.
3. They're Boomers.
4. No. They don't make that much of a difference. It's more about what you're comfortable with and what you're tuning it to. Going from 9-42 Slinks to 10-60 Dunlops has not changed the tone of my guitar except for the fact that I'm tuned a full step below standard on the Dunlops.
