I have different guitars for GHS 11's and D'addario's 10's.
GHS Boomers - Nickel plated steel - 10 to 38. They are brighter than plain nickel and seem to be more even feeling when playing from wrapped strings to plain steel strings.
Elixir 10's. Pricey but feel/sound great for 4 times longer than any I have tried. I tried a set and haven't changed brands since. I put elixirs on both my acoustics and electrics. Which reminds me I need to pick some up tomorrow.
D'addario 11's, cuz they are the only strings that I can find in packs of 10 here in Sweden And 11's cuz they feel great and gives you a little resistance.
Best is whatever works for you, but I'm using these in Eb and like them...
Ernie Ball, GHS, D'addario. Pretty much the same quality.
This exactly, all my other guitars have ernie ball 11s on, strat has 3150L because they feel so good and smooth!
D'Addario EXL120+ (9.5s) My old hands can't handle 10's on a strat anymore. 9's are too light. These are a good compromise.
GHS Boomers here.
Ernie Ball Regular Slinky .10's...
Anyone know something about the Martin Guitars Darco strings? Just asking because I can order them for about $3. Used to paying about $10 for strings but I can't imagine there is that much of a different in quality.
I often think people over think it too much when it comes to string.
Rotosound 9s. I love the free high e string.
Darco are fine. I used their phosphor bronze acoustic sets for years.
DR Pure Blues 12-50
D'Addario's give a slightly puncher tone and last a little longer. Ernie Ball's are slightly warmer and can tone down a trebly Strat. Fender strings do not last but the bullets work better for the trem. DR and Markley are nice quality strings that feel good.
