What type of strings do you use and why?

Recommended Posts

after years of using 9 gauge on my electrics, I was recently given a set of 7s made by Dunlop for Billy Gibbons and I like them

an earlier post mentioned putting 8s on an SG,  I found even 9s to be too thin on the SG and opted for a set of 10s.

I play acoustic only.  I use phosphor bronze medium gauge from a small company in New Hampshire called Euphonon.

Also those are the strings that Jimmy used back in the day.

Jimmy Page uses Extra Slinky Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings - 8-38 Gauge.

Depends what I'm playing. When I'm playing my own electric material it's a mix of stoner rock, swedish death metal and progressive metal (like Opeth) so I use Guitar Boomers 10-60 gauge because I bounce between B and C Standard.

If I'm playing classic rock I usually go for some light Ernie Ball Slinkys, usually either 8, 9 or 10 gauge.

 

Acoustically I use D'Addarios.

I always thought Page used 009 gauge?
