What are these strings everyones talking bout??


Just kidding.
I want to get new strings soon. I currently have D'addario strings(no idea what guage).
Can anyone reccomend me a good brand and good guage?
Tuning: I frequently change tunings. About every 5 minutes.
Tunings i use:
Open C
Standard
Eb
Drop D
Open G and D
GGDGBG

Any ideas? I would like the strings to be relatively "tight" in low tunings

Thanks

i use d'addario 11's. they respond really well to lower tunings. however, you may even want to switch up to 12's, as 11's can get flappy sometimes, if you pick hard enough.

I'm surprised your guitar hasn't packed its **** and walked out the door by now.
I use Ernie Balls, for low tunings I'd go with .11 (Beefy Slinky).
GHOST BLOWJOB!
WHOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!

from what ive learned, strings dont like drastic change, so no matter what strings you use, they are more likely to break from the tuning changes. I use DR's, they are pretty decent, otherwise i recommend ernie ball
