Default What strings do you use?

Hmm.

What kind of strings would do you guys use? Just a checking of preferences, btw.


Cheers,

^HAHAHAHAHAHA

thats ERNIE.


good to see you back spikey.

ernie balls just dont do it for me. i bent a string in half playing them. so...i stopped using those. i tried blue steel and GHS....but i find that elixirs are the best. they last forever. the only reason i would ever use blue steel again is the sound they give. i use 11's on my strat and 9's on my esp. theyre a little light for metal but the floyd makes 'em work.

My thoughts exactly. You pay $4 at the most for a set that will last you around a month. The only difference is the guage size. I'm not spending $11 for a pack of strings that feel the same. Oh and I use Ernie Ball Regular Slinky (the green pack)

and strings down here at their cheapest are £7 for me. i can't find them any cheaper and they're the same ones your using and with the exchange rate you can times that by a half if you want to convert into dollars, see, i have no choice, the cost of strings is putting me slowly under the poverty line.

the only reason i pay the extra money for the elixirs is because they dont get all crusty and gritty after a few weeks. just...personal preference i guess, but i hate when strings get like that.

Mine do it within 8 days of putting them on. Party because I have clamy handsxcore and partly because I don't have anything to clean them with.

^exactly. i rarely clean my strings. ill wipe them down with my shirt when im done playing but other than that...i havent cleaned them for about a month.

if you dont want to spend the extra money, get "finger ease". its this spray on stuff (i forget exactly whats in it) but it cleans up the strings really well.
