Peavey Guitar Strings...

Are they any good?
Right now I'm using D'Addario's, and I plan to stick with me. My local guitar shop sells Peavey's in bulk. Since every time the only string that breaks is my high E string, I figure it'd be more economical to stock up on .010s and just replace them when they break. Would it be a good idea to use a Peavey .010 along with the rest of my D'Addario set?

Anyone have any experience playing with Peavey strings?

Its something that people do do. Ive heard of people using certain brands for wound strings and certain brands for plain. I suggest you buy 2 or 3 high e strings and give it a try. If you like the sound or cant tell a noticable difference, soud-wise or feel-wise, from your regular brand then go for it.

I recommend buying bulk strings from juststrings.com. They're just as good or better than most brands people usually buy. And they're cheap as hell. They're all I use now.

Wow! I'll definitely check it out! Do you have lots of experience with guitar strings?

EDIT: Just checked. It's almost $10 Canadian for shipping... know of any Canadian places where I can buy bulk strings?

Yeah, i don't get it... unwound juststrings strings last better than any other unwounds i've ever used. I use those as replacements for the unwound strings in a hybrid elixer 7-string set (i buy a 6 and a low B). works for me.
