Alchemy Dean Markley Gold-Bronze are my favorite. They are coated and have an EXCELLENT sound...

When I went to go buy my first strings, I asked the guy at Guitar Center what strings he would reccomend and which are the best. He told me the Alchemy strings were. However, they were 12 bucks a pack. So, not having much money, I went for the cheaper Martin SP strings (around 6 bucks). The Martins sounded like crap when i first put them on and I could never get them all to sound right. Moreover, one of the strings actually broke. They rusted pretty quick and I ended up taking them off after a couple months. Went back to Guitar Center. Bought the Alchemy strings. As soon as I put them on, oh my god what a difference. It sounded like the heavens opened up and angels were singing as I strummed the first chord. Those strings lasted me 8 months and probably couldve taken even more time but I had a performance so I changed them.

May be more expensive, but in the long run your saving money because they last so long....

Yeah, I've also used D'addario EJ16s for a while. Pretty solid.

I always get Elixers, but apparently I'm getting screwed. I like them personally, but I also use D'Addario nickle wound for my back up strings and stuff.

Yeah...
