I use .009s, for basically every genre (rock, blues, metal mostly?) In standard.

I've tried .010s, but they always pull the neck out of whack. Heaviest my guitars seem to be able to handle are light (.009) tops and heavy (.010) bottoms. And then it is in D standard/ Drop C.

I use .11's a lot and I've used .12's once or twice. But I got to admit, I just put 10s on and I like em, so I will probably use them for the next few string changes.

Well you just have to adjust the truss rod and intonation probably.


I'm thinking of bumping up to 14's just for the hell of it haha. Maybe I'll go back to 12's after and they'll be a piece of cake. I can barely play 9's they're so noodly, my bends go sharp and I can't do runs as fast because the wobbly strings trip up my picking haha

Behold...the Arctopus are obviously music. I don't see how anyone could say they're not music compared to many modern and post-modern composers. That being said, I think B...tA are terrible.

it varies. Mostly the ernie ball slinky sets, in various gauges, although i also have been using GHS boomers lately, and i'm considering trying some of those infinity-steel strings GHS do, i've been told they recude the boomy bass response you get from higher output passive humbuckers like the fender atomic-humbucker i have on my Cyclone, which causes the bypass of some of my pedals to clip as though i'm using a crap solid state amp...
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#18
im a recent convert to ernie ball skinny top/heavy bottom 10-52s for D standard

9s phail in comparison
these ones also seem to last longer?

oh and music style, mostly metal or hard rock....
Top lel.

custom set of 12-54 Roto-Sounds tuned to D standard now...


Pretty good for anything... I use it mainly for my Death Metal band, but I also write in many different genres such as classical/chillout/funk etc etc..
