I posted a thread a while back, asking you about what kind of guitar pick you use. Now, lets talk about your strings! What brand do you use, gauge, and WHY?! I use Dean Markley Blue Steel 009-042 on my Capri Orange Tele. I think they sound very pure and clean. I play mostly Country music and I TRY to play some jazz as well. I like to bend the strings a lot so I need the soft gauge. I used Ernie Ball slinkies before but I find them a bit TOO easy to bend. On my acoustic (Garrison AG-600) I use GHS Vintage Bronze at the moment. I work in a musicstore and those are the strings we stock. I prefer Bronze instead of phosfor bronze. They sound a bit warmer I think... I haven´t tried Dean Markley´s Alchemy strings. I´ve heard they are like Elexir´s... Anyone tried them? Any good?
