Thanks people for good response !! I think this will be very useful to a lot of people because its not easy to find the right strings for you.I see a lot of you use EB strings wink.gif I wish I found them earlier..

Fast fret lubricates your strings and cleans them, you can definitely play faster with it because there is less friction between fingers and strings..But also (for me though) you need to give it some time to adapt to it.I didn't like the slippery and greasy strings the first time I put it on.And the best thing which I found out relatively recently is that if you leave it overnight you practically get new strings tomorrow wink.gif Don't wipe it off immediately after use like its stated in the users manual on it.. wink.gif

Before Dean Markley Blue and Signature 9-46, them moved on to 11-48 cheap Rotoreds, now between Zakk Wylde 10-48 and GHS Boomers 10-46 + a Fastfret. I constantly abuse them with 2note bends so durability is a must and with GHS and Zakk Wylde I`m sure they will not break.

Right now, I've got the GHS Boomers 10-46 tuned half a step down, and they sound great. I also fully recommend Fast Fret. I've been using it for about six months now and like Bogdan said, it works amazing, especially over night!

Anyone tried DRs Color Coated strings ?? I'm thinking of getting some for my bass because it would look good (red strings can you imagine)..I see that they make same strings for electric guitars (DR extra life hot pink,evergreen etc models) so I was wondering how they sound..wink.gif

D'addario 9-42, as they're the cheapest I can find. The bags they come in also keeps my whammy bar in place.

I had some of teh black DR's I put on my string thru schecter. The very act of stringing the guitar brought about 20% of the coating off, the first hour of playing probably took the next 60% off of the EGB strings. The wound strings didn't have that problem. I wasn't impressed w/ the DR strings but I'd give them another shot. Personally use EB Slinkys. Pretty durable, don't have the break in period that D'Addarios have.

For electric it is usually, GHS GBXL 009-042, but for gigs the best were GBCL 009-046
currently testing Dean Markley, Signature series - 009-042

For acoustic D'Addario EXP15 - 010-047

For classical D'Addario EXP46 Hard Tension

I think I'll save the oil for my new guitar.

As for the strings. I've been trying different brands considering I'm not experienced enough to recognize string differences. D'addario, Ernie Balls, Boomers, etc. Just trying to stay flexible and I figure it'll help in the long run not to accustom myself to a specific makeup.
