What Guitar Strings do you use?
Years ago, i played Dean Markleys, which were okay, but i never really found them extraordinary in any way. I experimented with Ernie Balls, D'Addarios and Blue Steels, but when i tried GHS Boomers, my search was over. They're my favourite sounding string, bar none. I'm tempted to try DR and Elixirs, but i'm so pleased with the Boomers, i don't really see any need to change, other than to get added life out of the Elixirs.
I use 9-42 on all of my electric guitars (all 6-strings) but i'm toying with the idea of moving up to 10's, but don't want to lose any clarity.
I'm also going to try the GB-LOW Boomers set, which is 11-53, and geared specifically toward dropped-tunings. I'm going to experiment with exactly how low i want to go. Ideally, i'd like to go down to B, but i'll see where i end up. Basically, i want the heaviest strings i can find that have an unwound third string.
