10's are good all around strings

Dyldo 2003-02-05 19:39

10s cant hold low tunes, they de-tune real quickly, id go with 11s.

I love that movie :D

I use Regular Slinkies, 10's.

brands: dean markley/blue steel, d'addario, ernie balls, ghs. depends what sort of tone you want. d'addario are probably the most aggressive sounding of the lot, as used by SLAYER.

as for gauges,

id say, go with 52-11

this will take you down to a comfortable C#.

:uzi:

d'addario 11's are great, but it can be a bitch osmetimes to solo real well wiht them. I just recently bought some 10s.

Belphegor 2003-02-06 07:55

I wish i came here earlier. I just re-strung with Ernie Ball "super slinky's" (9-42).

oh well, i'll thrash the shit out of 'em anyway.

guitar_demon 2003-02-06 16:50

9-42?? one word "ew"

Belphegor 2003-02-06 22:30

Yeah.

Amateur's mistake i suppose.

but Ernie ball are good strings at least (well i like em)

PantericA 2003-02-07 13:17

what's wrong with the 9-42's? i don't think they are that bad.

freek666 2003-02-07 20:03

why the fuck do my ernie balls keep breaking at the 4rth string!!???

im just broke another string i'm prolly gonna get some d'addario's by the way,
wally you have the same avatar as mine, i just suck at doctoring images and couldn't fit it without distorting the image, so i just put it on like that

walpurgis 2003-02-07 22:14

slayme did mine, not me. I wouldn't have even bothered setting one if I had to do anything besides click a couple times.

hmm....well, i don't break that many strings and i don't find them too thin. i think they are easier to do crazy bends and shit. and i don't detune either so.....

artofnothing6 2003-02-08 14:06

i can't stand ernie ball strings. I love d'addario's or DRs. D'addarios kick ass for guitars and bass.
