Love Rocks, Goldstars etc... Ernie Ball RPS Power Slinky 11's, on the Rickenbackers and Gretsch Pyrimids. They are the only string for a Rick 12! TG

I've been using the purple Ernie Balls for seven years and I have no complaints. They last long and are big enough to fatten your tone up and still achieve ballsy bends and vibratos. I can't say enough how much I hate D'addario's! They don't last very long and while they have a snappy attack to them they seem to tonally deteriorate on me, so I stay away as much as possible. Electro-Harmonix makes great strings to as well as great tubes and effects, but that's just my personal opinion.

I agree! D'Addario strings are terrible! TG

D'dardadardararioses are not the greatest strings, I agree, but they have a .0095 gauge which, IMO, is perfect for Strats - just enough stiffness but still highly bendable. Still wear out too soon, but they feel good. Maybe there's another brand out there that has 9.5s.

Just tried a set of Super Mullets .009s (great artwork, BTW) on a Silver Star and they seem very good. A Strat tuned half a step down with purple Slinkys rocks, though. Colossal bottom end.

Ah yes, back to the actual topic at hand - apologies all around I like GHS 10 nickels on a Les Paul - decent strings. Elevens gives my creaky, geezin' wrists tendinitis

I Use Firewires mostly(.009-.010 Gauge), Not too long lasting, but they serve their purpose for being relatively cheap strings. If you want Durable strings, go with Ernie Ball, IMO.
