DR Strings are THE best strings I have ever played, bar none.

I've been a loyal DR strings user for a long time now. They have a longer life, and i like the tone they seem to put out.

I'm a fan of the regular Ernie Ball slinkies.

DR

DR High beams 9-46 just like petrucci... regardless DR seem to be next to impossibel to break and they have the longest life of any string. The only other string I like that i'd put up there with them is a european company DeSalvo and their strings are also amazing.

I'd have to say that the strongest 9-42 strings I ever bought came in a package that said "10-52"

i use ernie ball super slinky's but find them fairly inconsistant, they either last ages or only a few days... use DR's they're stronger

um, how quickly do you break them? does it usually seem to be the same string(s)?

Your problem could be not in the strings, but rather a saddle bur or something.

DR's are probably some of the best strings out there. They are like the hulk of strings. Good tone, good life, good price. I usually just buy whatever I can afford out of my pocket and it seems to do. I've used em all, don't really have a normal set I use anymore.

http://www.drstrings.com/ Neat Harmonics?? Listen to Dream theater, Fear Factory etc etc most of the bands you listen to probably use them. I will never use an ernie ball string again as they never lasted very long, had no tension (slinky) and they broke extremely easy.

Ohh here's the other company I talked about.. Amazing strings and something all you people in europe have easy access to. http://www.desalvostrings.com
