Guitar Strings

Recommended Posts

I don't really like 9's. I usually use 10's or 11's.

For brands, D'Addario. (<- Did I spell that right?)

I asked myself from day one..."What does Jimmy use?"

SUPER SLINKYs baby, Ernie Ball.

nuff said.

But I do use D'Addario on my acoustic.

I have Ernie Ball Earthwoods or something like that on my acoustic. Jimmy used those too. He also used Ernie Ball 12-strings.

D'addario 9's.

D'Addario 11's for me, I would like to play a lighter string gauge but I pick really aggressive and I also use a 2.0 mm jazz type pic so for those reasons I play a thicker gauge.

My Tele is set up for slide work so it is strung with 13's and the action is set higher than my Lesters.

On the acoustic I use D"Addario phosphor bronze .012, .016, .024, .032, .042, .053. Not the heaviest set but again the lightest gauge I can get away with.

yeah, I've always been meaning to try out the Ernie Ball strings; sounds like I should.

I'm using D'addario at the moment. But I have my high E string on a lighter gauge (don't ask why)

I've used Super Slinkys (sized 9-42) since I was a teen. I haven't broken a string in years. On some of my guitars, the strings are damned near a year old and they take whatever abuse I hurl at them. :D

Either Elixer 10's (nano web) or D'Darrio 10's.

In my last band I did almost 2 years of rehearsals and gigs on the same set of ernie ball's...never even bothered to carry a backup guitar or a pack of strings(I had about a dozen sets at home...lol whenever I'd go to my favorite music shop to buy picks(ironically I go thru those like crazy) they'd throw in a free pack of strings)

I used to use Ernie Balls, but they kept breaking and they were too expensive to keep buying. so now I use D'Addario 11's.

I want to know what the set that used to be on my Granddad's classical were, they must have been on that guitar for about 20 years and they were in in brilliant condition, considering.

On my classical I play 'ZAYA-RUSO' strings.

$2 a set and they sound as good as any expensive brand I've tried.

They're made in the Ukraine.
