10s is fine buy me. I don't need to have a big-dick contest. And Mr. Hendrix used 8s. So if he can sound massive with 8s. I should be alright with 10s.

ijust use 11s or 12s because i'm that's what i am used to, i play acoustic guitars at home mainly, and bass in the band, so playing on thick strings don't feel so weird.

They are a little more expensive, but I'm always happy to shell out the extra for a set of DR's. You know?
