Has anyone used DR Strings before?

I'm currently using Ernie Ball Power Slinkies, and they do me well tone wise, but they break a little bit too quickly for my patience. Plus, some of my favorite metal/core bands use these strings.

just cut my DL .09s out and realized i had no more...getting some DLs tomorrow...probably .10s this time
seemed to hold tune well too, i could go for daaaaays without tuning

i was using d'addario xl .09s before the DLs and they were ok
yo DL = good

leeeearning experience - always buy stings in sets of 2 or 3 if you can (even though i know they age it's better to have back up then nothing at all) i learned the hard way

I use DR Pure Blues, and I love them, I've tried many a string and these I just love. Love the feel, love the sound, love that they last! Different people have different body chemistries so they might not last as well for some people, but they're definitely worth a try. Also, they might not be your thing as far as sound goes, but I love them. Chords are brilliant on them, you really hear every note.

ive used DR before and theyre good strings. my only problem was i had to break them in before i like the tone, where as with D'Addario, which are on all my guitars, sound amazing right out of the package
