Mostly for my own reference, but the prodigal son has returned...to Ernie Ball, that is The first strings that I ever used that made it impossible for me to put my guitar down were EB Slinkies, the regular ol' green pack of 10-46's. Over the years, those have been my standby, while I've experimented with other brands (Fender Bullets, GHS offerings, D'addario, and many others), but nothing quite feels like Slinkies. One thing that I've learned from my acoustic playing is that I like a little more chunk around the low E. So, thanks to Fret Nation, I was able to buy several packs of Ernie Balls (and one set of Dean Markleys), each pack is 10's, but the thickest strings range from 46 (standard green pack Slinkies) to 52 (the red pack Skinny Top Heavy Bottom). Right now, I've currently got Ultra Slinkies (10-48) on my modern Telecaster, and I'm very happy with the little bit of added oomph on the low end (as compared to 10-46's). These are 10-13-17-28-38-48. I took the Cusack Pedal Strings off of my Strat and put on normal Slinkies, thereby returning the sound to it's toneful default. For reference, these are 10-13-17-26-36-46. I'm doing a little bit of neck maintenance on my Broadcaster, but I'm going to switch it up a little and put the Dean Markleys on this guitar...their Blue Steel strings in 10-13-17-30-40-50 (it was an old pack on clearance; I couldn't find this particular set of strings anywhere else online, so it may very well have been a typo on the website). I like the dark circuit wiring, and I'm replacing some DR's, so I hope the Markleys play nicely. Finally, my Ibanez Dumpster Fire has D'addario NYXL's on it. I'm chasing a little bit beefier of a tone, a'la Southern Rock or Cowpunk...so, I'm using the choice of strings of Mike Ness: EB Skinny Top Heavy Bottoms at 10-13-17-30-42-52. We'll see how this goes!
