    GHS low boomers for me (11-53). They crunch great especially when I tune to E. Seems to add that nice kick to the low E string you don't get with say 48s.

    blue steal here, i used to have .9 but i moved up to .10 to get better tone,


    if you go any bigger then .10 its really going to cut down your speed.

    ghs zw boomers, 10-60's...and yes, strings have a direct effect on your tone, the material they are made of, and the way they are made affect it.

    I got a free set of DR Black Beauties, and tried them out. i can definitely feel the difference with the coating. I don't like it, doesn't feel the same.
