I've Just been given a set of Zakk Wylde GHS Boomers, I can't believe how thick they are!

GHS Boomers. On my Fender Strat and Yamaha I use a set of .009s but I replace the .009 itself with a .010. I end up with the following:

E - .010
B - .011
G - .014
D - .024
A - .034
E - .044

My other guitar uses a standard set of .010s: .010, .013, .016, .026, .036, .046

I have been using GHS Boomers for nearly 20 years....Most reliable strings ever. When I was playing up to 6 nights a week, I was only changing them once-twice a week coz they were so reliable, hardly ever broke a string. I use 46-36-26-17-13-10. :)

i've gone through GHS Boomers, Ernie Ball and right now I'm using
Dean Markley (009-042).

The boomers were 012-052 though.

I usually use Dean Markley's. I've tried Ernie Ball, DR, don't particularly like them, I found Ernie Ball turn black very fast.
Fender bullets are cool too. I'll use Dean Markley's or Fender bullets anyway, .010 to .042 or .044. I used to use .052 or even .054 but I think it's pretty much pointless, for me at least.

I use GHS strings. I can tell the difference between Ernie Balls strings compared to GHS strings. The gauge is 10-52 and I've tried Zakk Wylde set. Not the oversized for the low tune. I love the feel of the thick boton and light top. :roll:

Basically what ever is available. With the exception, Martin Marquis on my Martins and Adamas strings on my Adamas and Rickenbacker strings on a Ric.
Electrics, mostly Ernie Ball, GHS or DR. Basses- Fender strings, and 6 string bass-DR.

D'Addario 10s for me, chief. It's a sound I grew-up on or with, one could say. I have made a habit of swapping between the 9s and 10s every third time I change just to keep my self in check.
