Hey everyone

I just snapped two of my strings so i gotta go and get new ones tomorrow.

So the big question

Whats everyones favorite type/brand of strings for electric guitar?

I'm using an esp ex-400 .10 - .46 gauge I've tried Ernie ball and this one other brand (cant remember name) but neither set lasted a really long time or sounded particularly amazing.

thanks in advace

DR Strings are my personal favorite as of right now.

Right now I'm using the Dime Hi-Voltage set (9-50). Nice chunky bottom (not quite thick enough for my liking but pretty close). Even with the coating, they still have a very natural feel. I've had this set on for about six weeks and they are still in great condition.

Brands I would reccommend

D'addario
Dean Markley (Hit and Miss)
DR
GHS

Animal intestines seemed to work great for at hundreds of years, so i usually use them.

when i don't have a sacrificial lamb handy for the guitar gods, i usually use Super Slinkys

I've also been trying coated DR's in whatever color tickles my fancy at the time. I also like Dean markly blue steels.

I used to use HEAVY strings (almost like having 7 strings on my 6) but i got sick of hurting my fingers, and i now used a pretty light string (ive changed my playing style a bit too)

Elixers, when I can afford them (10-42).

i use Daddario EXL110 10-46. i put them on my guitar at the start of may. before, i used Alice steel strings set and it did not last a month. the steels ate my frets so i replaced them with daddarios. they've been abused and yet it's still in good condition. my next set would be GHS Progressives.
