I'm almost positive this has been done before, but I even did an advanced search and nothing came up.


What is your string gauge preference? I use Ernie Ball .10-.52

9-46 deffinatly can't do drop A, unless you want it to sound like rubber bands on your fretboard.

E Standard- 9/42.
Drop D- 9/46.
D Standard- 10/46.
Drop C And C Standard- .11's.

I don't go lower then C, unless I want to jam in B for a while.

EDIT- Oh yeah. I only use Elixir AR Nanowebs.

i use 10-46 on a 24 3/4 scale guitar probably comparable to 9-42 on a 25.5 scale as far as tension and bendability. my guitar origanally came with the light top heavy bottom guage set that you use and it was great for beating down power chords but i started to feel like the thicker strings were throwing me off because its like you have a light half and a medium half of the guitar. it felt a little off with scales or anything with bending and for me it made barred chords dificult because of the two tier tension on the strings.
PS if youre thinking about changing guages remember it will change the action and intonation slightly and the guitar might need re-intoned or possibly even a truss rod adjustment if the action is buried or you make a big change in size.

Ernie Ball Slinky's. .11s are all I use in any tuning.

I only ever write music in standard, using EB Slinkys 9-42. I'll probably switch to D'Addarios because the high E ALWAYS breaks on the 'tree' behind the nut when I'm tuning.

Who says you need a band? A bass can do just as much exciting shit as a guitar can.

10's, though I may buy a pack of 11's to test. Ernie Ball Slinkys are what I trust. Standard, and sometimes Drop D. Sometimes Eb and C# too

11-52

Always in Standard.

I'm afraid to whammy up on my FR though in fear of putting too much tension on the neck.


It shouldn't put too much tension on the neck, you know sometimes guitarists without whammy will grab the headstock and bend the neck? That doesn't damage a guitar so using the floyd shouldn't either. . . . so don't sweat it.

EDIT- TNT boomers suck, the inconsistent heavy low to light high makes it hard to sweep or keep consistent picking on all of the strings, I just had to throw this statement out there.

.10-.52 Elixir strings. Their coated though to make them last longer because I pick hard, so they feel like .11's, or some sort of midground between .10 and .11, to me at least. I tune to Eb usually though, so it's not a huge problem.

10-46 Ernie Balls.

The tone doesn't die if you wipe the fretboard down like you should.
