so today I bought a set of dunlo icon wyldes and they suck horribly.the high e string broke as of tuning up and the tone is just absoloutley horrid.so I need recommendations of a new type of string to play, I play metal on a lp and prefer bigger strings 12,13's but decided to try 10's today and it just didnt work out so anything higer then an 11 will work
#2
You're looking for another brand? Try D'Addario, they sound great on my LP, and feel better than any other strings i've tried.
#3
yeah looking for new brands I like d 'addario's but the only ones they sell at my gc are jazz series and sound shit for metal
#6
Yeah I am thinking alot about drs if I do are the dime bag HIgh voltage series any good or do the standard drs sound the same?
#7
i was gonna mention my favorite brand, dean markley blue steel, but theyre extremely hard to get in anything higher than .10's.

in that case, try ernie balls power slinkies.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

I'd get some Hi-Beams if I were you.

what about the les paul proper ones? or failing that i've got a set of fender super bullets 0.10 on my (custom made) LP and they sound amazing! in fact i prefer them to the actual les paul strings
#13
I liked Gibson Pure Les Paul Strings. They were really good, too bad there weren't anything thicker than 10-46

I think im gonna get a set of drs,do they make 13's or 12's?if not ill probably go with the ernie balls but from what i hear they rust and stuff rather quick is this true.I did use lp strings before but i started playing 12/13's and havent found anything with good tone yet besides d'addario jazz but they dont work for metal which is what I play now for the most part
