Which strings do you use? And how often do you change your strings?
I used to play D'Addario strings. But since I switched to Ernie Balls (regular slinky 010 - 046) I get a better sound and tone out of my guitar. Over time strings get old and gradually lose their brillance. I switch my strings every half year or so.
I was wondering which strings you use and how often do you change the strings?
I'm using Ernie Ball Regular Slinky 10-46s. This is my second set. I changed my first set of Brite Wires after 4 years. So I don't really have a pattern yet. I figure as long as it's staying in tune, why change?
I use Elixir Nanoweb .010-046 coated Guitar strings. I really like the coated strings, seems easier on my fingers - especially now, playing Rocksmith so much. I bought a set of Ernie Ball strings, going to put them on my other guitar... and try them out. Alot of folks talk so highly about them, I wanted to give them a try. The Ernie Balls were also about a third of the cost, compared to the Elixirs.
Strings tend to loose their brilliance. It goes really slow, so you don't notice. But when you change your old strings for new ones you'll here the difference. The guy in the local music store said I should change strings every month. Well, as long as I don't win the lottery I'm surely not going to change strings every month!! ...And there's no money tree in my garden either
GHS Boomers Ultra Light, been using them for about 25 years now. Changing them depends on which guitar they're on and how often it's used, When playing gigs I'll pop a new set on every gig, for practice guitars I change them about once a month.
