Which brand and gauge of string does everyone recommend for a Schecter Hellraiser C-1 FR. I play mostly metal, hardcore, punk...help.
Anything would probably do, I use D'Addarios, some people use Ernie Balls, Dean Markley, DR, GHS... try a few.
if you stay around standard, drop d, and Eb i found ernie ball super slinky to be a great string, if you detune then i used ernie ball not even slinky for drop C..but i guess just try out different strings and found the ones that suits you best
Ibanez RG270
Squire Stagemaster 7string

theres no best string imo, only something more suited to what you do. I use EB 10-46 because I like having flexibility without sacrificing too much resonance. Consider having a bigger gauge if you tune under the standard tuning, like 11's. I'd recommend Dean Markley, GHS or Ernie Ball.
My gear:
-Ibanez JS 6000 Custom w/ 11-48 gauge
-Ibanez FGM 400BB w/ 10-46 gauge
-Peavey 6505 2x12 Combo
-MXR Phase 90
-Boss DD-6 Digital Delay
-Morley Wah/Volume Pro Series II
-Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer
-Gator G-Bus 8
-Xotic BB Preamp
For the most part, strings are strings. It's a preference thing, completely.

So what? I wasted like 5 minutes watching DaddyTwoFoot's avatar.

Metalheads are the worst thing that ever happened to metal.
DR 10s are good for playing in drop D and D standard.
