    What is the twangiest strings out there for country music with a good bite to them?
    What about Blue Steel or Regular Slinkys

    I've always gone with Hybrid Slinkies - the heavier bass strings give a good meaty twang but you can still pull off those 2 and 3-string bends on the top ones.

    guitar strings that you can twang easiest with would have to be the strings that you can physically twang easily with.

    i am 100% convinced that at the point of strings (after you of course decide that you want a tele to twang) it is mostly technique. of course, if you had ridiculously thick baritone strings on there might be a difficulty....

    I agree, heavier strings mean tighter strings, and tighter strings mean more twang, but you do need to compromise on the high strings (or have gorilla hands.)

    Twang is also found picking closer to the bridge.

    Hello,
    The classic tone would probably have came from Black Diamonds 12-52 !!!
