What brand of strings are you using?
And what gauge is the best for standard tuning?

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Ernie ball 9’s and 10’s. I use hybrid strings on my down tuned guitars. Don’t feel as sloppy on the lower strings.

About a year ago I switched from Hybrid Slinky’s to D’addario NYXLs 10-46. I’m really digging them, I don’t think I’ll be switching back.

I use D’Addario NYXL, 10-46 on 6 strings and 10-52 on 7 strings.
But I have a “blues” guitar in Eb with 11-52 for some painful, soulful bends :slight_smile:

Haven’t tried the XTs yet. I’ve never been into coated strings for some reason, but it’s been years since I’ve tried them. I may as well give it another shot.

Daddario 10s
I break all the others.

There was a time I played with 11s. Tone was killer but well…they were 11s! Lol
