So i'm looking to buy guitar strings but i don't know which electric guitar strings sound the best. Any suggestions? and what are the prices for the strings?

oh and i have a Fender Stratocaster

I had these guitar strings on my guitar that i have gotten when i had my guitar bridge set up and the action lowered, but i don't remember what string company they were. But they sounded AMAZING .

Thank you.

I personally use Ernie Ball Super Slinky's (the ones with the pink cover). I got them with my Jackson and they sound amazing, plus all my favourite bands use these types of strings.
Gear:
Gibson Flying V
Jackson RR3 w/ Zakk Wylde EMG's
'89 Marshall 8240 Combo Amp
Marshall MG10 CD
Boss MT-2
Dunlop Dime Crybaby From Hell

strings are like 5 bucks. i personally use d'addario .011-.049, strings are all preference though.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

The difference between the popular string brands is fairly minimal, and it's really down to preference. Just try a few different brands out to see what you like. I like Ernie Balls on my Gibson and GHS Nickel Rockers on my Fender, for instance.

Just so you know, I read everything you type in a Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs voice.

I use regular slinkys (yellow) or hybrid slinkys (orange) if I'm feeling different for the day.
