Post My favorite strings & why?
I've been doing a little survey, I'm trying to find out what the; good tone, brightest & favorite guages for leads & why. I've found Infinity Steel(they're black, COOL 8), Fender bullets seem good for leads also. both are bright & toney. I've been playing 10guage cause i've heard they have better tone. I kinda miss the slinkiness of a lighter guage, but I wanna see what you players think. Talk to Me :?:

EB 10s. For no good reason at all. I've never found any difference in tone between string manufacturers at all.

I use the bulk strings from Musician's Friend. They last forever & sound great to me.

EB 10-56(i think 56)

7 string set. ive found that 10's are musch easier for me to be articulate with, and have better tone and sustain than 9's

IMHO of course

Hi,

EB 9's. They are a good price and last a lot longer than D'addarios. Apparently you can now get custom gauges from EB so i might go for the EAD strings from a set of 10's and GBE's from a set of 9's to get a chunkier sound. The problem is the floyd rose. What a pain in the ass.

Dean Markley 09-42's...
They've got a nice bright sound to them, and they seem to last a nice long time (I wouldn't really know, I tend to change them every other month or so... broken or not) :)

DR 9-42. They last a hell of a lot longer than EBs, and they don't get STICKY like D'Addario.

I melt down old bits of metal objects i find laying around. Then i pour the molten metal into fine threads of tone. Sometimes i use glass, but those strings break easilly. I tend to get alot of dust and hair into the mix but i like to think thats what creates the rich tone of my Shredacuda Brand string. I can make any gauge, but i like to use 9-46.

Cool. Do you make strings to order? I could get some used scalpel blades from the O.R. that you could melt down to make some awesome stainless steel strings! And the crusted blood would make the tone killer (literally!).
