With countless kinds of guitar strings out there, i thought it would be interesting to hear what kind of strings the people here use (and swearby).

When you reply, please tell why you like whatever string it is (last a long time, tone, etc..)

For my electrics, i like DR's Dimebag Darrell strings in gauges 10-46. Love how they sound, they bend easily, and last pretty long(they're coated).

For my acoustic, i like the Ernie Ball Earthwound strings(don't remeber the gauges). They make my acoustic sound really warm and full and they stay in tune really well.

Looking forward to the replys.

Guitars: Electric: Jackson DX10D, J. Reynolds Fat Strat copy

Well, the reason I use the strings I do is because I like the tone the give off, and I think they last a long time.

Electric - D'Addario EXL110 - 10-46

Acoustic - GHS Vintage Bronze - 10-46
