Default What guitar strings do you use/prefer? - 07-11-2010, 09:25 AM

As of lately I've been trying out different strings, mostly for my acoustic seeing I generally use Ernie Ball for my electrics yet they don't make acoustic strings. So, really the title says it all.


For me, right now my favorite strings are Dean Markely Blue Steel for acoustics, and I still use Ernie Ball for electric. I am going to soon try out Dean Markely for electric though. I have tried D'Addarios and they have a tendancy to snap, atleast on my floating trem guitars. They're the only brand of strings I've actually snapped while playing.

I'm still in the 'beginner' stage. Using 9's. First couple of replacements were D'Adarrio's but have begun using Ernie Balls (Super Slinky) as I prefer the sound.


Still just a beginner. Learnin on my JT-200D with a Marshall MG-10CD.

I use Rotosound Yellow Vintage Gibson nickles. Some of the trees to the DR or Snake Oil brand nickel. My Firebirds at GHS Nickle Rockers 10's. DR strings on all levels. I really like all these different languages, use them sound good on guitar, many years of experimentation.

I use D'Adario on classic guitar and Blue Steel on electric. Tried many (MANY!) different strings over the years but these suit me best.

Good choice on the Dean Markely Blue Steel for acoustics.

Boring Im afraid but its a combo of 3: Ernie Ball Super Slinks, Rotosound Pinks and Electro Harmonix Nickel Wound 9's. All decent.


GTR Music for great electric and acoustic guitars. Good old fashioned service and plenty of stock too.

Apparently I am pretty boring when it comes to strings
I play D'addario on both acoustic and electric
custom 10's for electric,
and custom lights for acoustic.
