I do it like Jimmy (and almost everybody in the late 60s and 70s)
Ernie Ball regular Slinky. Since day one, they just deliver and are cheap enough that replacing them often is not an issue. I buy bulk and change my strings on a regular basis.
Ernie Ball Slinky 10s are my preferred right now and on one of my teles - I have rotosound 10s on my other Tele and they are fine - maybe a tad bright. I had them so I used them.
Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky on my strats - 9-46. Orange pack.
I used to use GHS Boomers for years and they were fine but I did get one pack that was completely dead right out of the package. Preferring the Slinkies all around right now.
GHS Boomers 10-46.
They're cheap and I haven't had any duds.
I like round-core strings.
Ernie Ball Regular Slinky 10-46, here.
Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys most of the time, although I’ll use GHS Boomers and Gibsons now and then.
I don’t like to go lighter than 10-46 because if I do my bends get a little carried away. I guess I’m used to the feel of that gauge after all these years.
Probably be mocked for this sacrilege but Gibson bright wires 9s
D'Addarrio XL 10-46 Nickle Wound on electrics.
D'Addarrio EJ 12-53 Phospher Bronze on acoustics.
Very consistent quality.
D'Addario XL 10-46 Nickel wound with wound 3rd.
Thomastik Power Brights, heavy bottom strings on my AO 50’s Tele. They run from .050’s to .010’s and I like them a lot on this guitar.
Elixir Nanowebs 10-46
Ernie Ball 9’s
D'Addario Nickel Wound. 10-46
Yup - D'Addario XLs 10-46
I recently discovered these... wish I had much earlier.
D' Addario nickel;
10, 12, 12, 24, 34, 44
The 10 on the top really adds more presence to the high E string.
And no problem bending on those top two strings like I can on 9 and 11.
It's basically a 9- 44 set
that I replace the E, B, and G strings.
I used to be a Dean Markley user years ago. I found that they sounded amazing when they were brand new but they had a very steep fall off from great to dead.
I switched over to D'Addario and they are great strings. Durable and hold their tone for much longer than the Markleys.
