  • Favorite brand and gauge of strings

    Mine are Ernie Ball and D'addario because they are easily and cheaply found, plus they are consistent. As for gauges, I prefer 10-46 and 11-48 because they feel better in E and Eb standard.

    When warrior mode is enabled- Satan Strings - .666 on the high e, 6.66 on the low.

    But usually, 10's - 46 DRs
    I'm reaching up and reaching out.
    I'm reaching for the random or whatever will bewilder me.
    And following our will and wind, we may just go where no one's been.
    We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

            Ernies, Daddarios, and Gibsons are fine with me. I usually get Gibsons because they are the cheapest. For statnard tuning I use 11-13-17-26-34-44.

                My fave are EB regular slinky's when they are freshly changed. Since I'm not a pro and don't have my guitar's strings changed everyday, my favorite are Daddarios.

                        D'Addario exls. Different gauges for different guitars/purposes/tunings.

                        Elixir Nanowebs on the acoustics, and GHS Bass Boomers on my basses.
                        Yup. PM inbox is full.

                            do you play a lot of slide on the Tele?

                              I'm not picky about strings. I'll use 9s 10s or 11s, usually D'Addario or EB. I think I have Elixer 12s on my acoustic.
