Here are the choices
None of the above...
Everly B-52's - best electric strings I've used in 35 years of playing guitar.
I've used Boomers for 7 years....
EB Power Slinkys
If anyone know of an equal or better set of 11-48s, please lemme know.
I personally like the Boomers 11's for the 50 low E.... Not as floppy... That's just me though... I actually like a 52 because I drop D a lot for the Doyle Bramhall II style stuff.
None of the above.
Snake Oil Brand
after years and years (and years) of other manufacturer's strings (Ghs, D'Addario, DR, Ernie ball, DM, you name 'em), the Pyramids and the SOBs are the best that I have found for me.
Yeah... was toying with the idea of a heavier low E & if I do, I'll hafta try the Boomers.
I urge any of you guys playing any of the string set choices to give SIT Nickel Power Wounds a try. The SITs are in the same price range, are much smoother to the touch and last about 50% longer in terms of keeping tone and tuning.
They were spec'd on my Grosh which is good enough for me. Only string brand I've used since getting my first Grosh guitar. They go on every guitar play now.
ps: no affiliation with SIT whatsoever. Just trying to pass along possibly another and potentially better product for others to try.
Nothing else comes close.
Fender Bullets, nothing else compares..
i use strings ffrom webstrings.com
+1 on my trem strat. Do you use them on non trems as well? I`ve never tried them on any of mine, just d`addario. Now I want to try a set on my Jr.
Just ordered more yesterday.
They are the best.
Snake Oil Strings are the best I've ever tried.
John Pearse here...
ditto .... none of the above
Snake Oil Strings for me also.
dr pure blues 11's
Huge +1 on that. I really liked the Firewire's 3x durability, but I left 'em on TOO long, and they stained my maple neck green: F**k! I also got defective strings in both Firewire and Elixir packs: lame.
