So what strings do you use nowadays?

Postby shadowalk » 03 Jul 2018, 02:26

I know we had a strings thread a few years ago but i sard digging that up and search didn’t turn up anything when I typed in ‘strings’ :tvrky:

Anyway, I still use D’Addario (nickel wounds) 10-46 in Eb and D standard respectively on two 25.5 scale guitars.

same, d'addario 10's for E/Eb in 24 5/8" scale (ironbird)

d'addario 11-49 for D/drop C/C# in 24 5/8" (ironbird/mockingbird, I think one might be 25.5" tho)

d'addario 13-59 (7 string set ditching the 10's) in B/drop A on 24 3/4 (charvel). Same 7 string set for my mock 7.
