if you keep them clean and dont strum your guitar too hard they wont break.

for some people ernie ball's might break all the time(they did for me) and some cheapo musicianfriend strings might last forever... yet for somebody else, ernieballs' might seem undestructable..

i think boomers are alright, the tone they give doesnt apeal to me as much as addarios... i just like the way boomers have thin ass high strings and thicker low strings.

i play .12's D standard.. thick ass strings give thick ass tone imo. i used to play .09's in standard E, then i decided they're were to sissy and thin sounding, so i moved to .10's, much nicer, less flop and a heavier sound. but now that i'm tuning down a step i needed thicker strings.

GHS aren't bad, their boomers are cool, if you want something shrill, you might try ghs brights?? a bit dodge, but i've used them a few times as the shop was out of the other kinds. i'd say 10s for eb.

If you play alot of tremolo stuff/ bolt thrower style riffs + have a horrible guitar like me with a saddle that breaks strings, just go for the cheapest!

ernie ball rock. I love ernie ball. They break quite quickly though...

i use d'addario 10's, they keep there sound. I used to use ernie ball 10's and skinny top, heavy bottoms. I want to try out some elixirs, i here there good but fairly expensive. I also want to try out some strings which are flatwound (well at least i think its flatwound) so that the strings are really smooth not like addarios. Any ideas as to any companies which sell them?

DR Hi-Beam 10's in standard tuning. They do sound bright, so you might try them, Infinity.

hmm i use different strings depending on my tuning. for my low tuned SG, i use GHS zakk wylde set, the ones that have light tops and heavy bottoms. i think its like 10 or 11 to 54 or something. for my standard tuned schecter i use addarios as well, usually 10-46 or 11-48. i had nothing but problems with ernie ball when i used them. also those x rockers are suprisingly nice, i had a set i threw on my V and they have been working out so far

from what ive learned over the decades....when i first started playing i used Ernie Balls for years just because thats all i knew to but, then at one point i tried d'addiaro....i never used Ernie Ball again. I used them for a few years randomly trying new strings to see if there was anything better and one day picked up a pack of Dean Markley...been using them ever since. Med 11-52.

Yeah, Daddario 11 are awesome. Didnt break for about 2 or 3 months! I went back to 10's and they died EXACTLY a week after purchase. Complete rubbish. 11's rule. I use E and D mostly with the 11's, but they are still firm at B. Great strings.

How the fuck do you guys play with 9's? Fuck that.
