ive been wondering whats the difference between light medium and heavy strings?
does it affect ur tone that much??? im playing with 09. DR strings... if i change to 10 what modifications on my guitar should i do?
My rig:::::
Epiphone les paul standard
Peavey classic 30
Digitech Bad Monkey
Dunlop Crybaby 535Q
Boss DD-7
Metal Muff
its mostly for detuning, heavier gauge strings are tighter when u detune so its easier to play
From what I've heard, .9 to .10 is alright, no major adjustments needed, besides like, intonation. But if you go to .11, you may need some truss rod adjustments. Really no tonal difference that I can hear, it just feels different.
My gear:
Schecter C-1+ w/ Seymour duncan Jazz (neck) and Full Shred (bridge), with Sperzels
B-52 LG-100A 4x12 half stack
Rogue LX405 Bass
Yamaha classical
Some sort of acoustic Squier
Boss Flanger
Lyon Chorus
You might have to adjust your intonation a little. Really no big deal. Don't hesitate to have the guy at the shop do it.
My string gauge should be located in my owners manual, correct?
