I use Ernie Ball Skinny Top/ Heavy Bottom strings (theones in the bright red package), but due to the kind of music my band plays, i need a set of strings that are made for faster play. can you guys help me out.

i play fast on ernie ball not even slinky's (12-56). so i think they can be fine. but maybe try elixirs. the coating they have on the strings make it easy to slide around on the strings. but personally, i find them too slipery and they have a different tone. i like how the string feels and sounds when its broken in.

Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys work perfect if the 52 is too big.

im not sure why you think you need thinner strings to play fast. there are a bunch of players who use heavy strings and play fast.
As a generalisation, thinner strings require less pressure to fret a note and therefore you can theoretically play them more easily. I know I play better with 9s than I do with 11s.

I suggest practice instead of new strings. New lighter strings will not make you much faster at all. In theory it does but its so insignificant that it doesn't matter.

if you are reeli obsessive, buy strings one by one instead of in a pack, then you can choose the guage of each string. i use power slinkys mixed with the 9 guage slinkys, so i can have a heavier bottom for down tuning but lighter at the top for soloing when using bends
