Hi, I'm new to these forums and just started playing 2 months ago.
I just broke a string for the first time and was wondering if someone could tell me what kinds of strings I could be getting. I use a Fender Strat if that helps.
If you've never replaced the strings on your Strat since you bought it, they're probably .009's. As for brand, Ernie Ball, Rotosound, D'Addario and others are good.
Strats are set up for .009's. The only strings I've ever used are Ernie Ball Super Slinkies and some Musicians Friend strings that my friend gave me. The Ernie Balls seem good to me. They last me for several months. The MF's sucked. The B string was the same size as the G string.
