What do you fellow guitar players prefer for string gauge and tuning? Right now I have 12's on my guitar and play in B standard. I find its pretty good for some slow sludge-core type riffs and really doomy clean stuff. For faster thrash type stuff I like 11's playing in D standard, I find it gives it more tension to pull off that faster stuff. I think I might have to buy new strings soon tho since I bought Ernie Balls last week and they seem to have a 'tinny' sound to them. At first I thought it was just because they're new and it would go away but I was also reading on the Down forums that someone else found Ernie Balls had that same type sound (which would be great for blues rock type stuff, but not for what I want to play right now). So what do you guys use/prefer?
