    Default String it up baby!

    I have used Dean Markley strings for the last 30 plus years but I have thrown into the mix some GHS and Fender and a few other names.... I remain a Dean Markley guy mostly as I guess I was just used to my old friend DM. How about you?

    D'addario EXP are my current favourites.

    Always loved pure nickel with single-coils (Pyramid is the best) but recently have been loving the Ernie Ball Cobalts for their logevity and feel. Going to try the new D'Addario "Balanced Tension" set soon and will chime in again after I give them a try.

    I used EB super slinky, then D'Addario 120, Dunlop and DR neon and regular, few Gibson brite sets... I must try Cobalt EB and Elixir I got few Dean's sets from FT-guy and in comparison with EB they are a somehow stronger on Strat but good.

    Slinkys for a long time but have been using the Cobalt's for a while now. They hold up well. I really like the Lifespan, coated strings Martin has on the acoustic side. That is what encouraged me to try the Cobalt's.
    I'm not sayin' that, I'm just sayin'......

    For years now, I've been using Musician's Friend strings, 2 bucks a set, no shipping charges, and they work great for me. When I'm desperate, I sometimes buy a bunch of sets from www.webstrings.com, they go for $2.49 a set.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
