    Hey. Lets make it one theard so people won't need to look for things.

    What is your favourite brand and gauge so far? I've to admit that after years i switched from Ernie Ball to Daddario NYXL. I have played regular Daddario too but the thinnest string after month or two felt really uncomfortable, still playable but a bit harsh.

    I felt in love in Daddario NYXL, they cost at least twice as regular ones, but stay really long and the feel of them is much better under your fingers. They're kinda soft. There is huge difference between NYXL and Nickel ones, i have made test and NYXl outlasted them 3 times longer. Nyxl 6 months, nickel 2. Last thing but not least, there are balanced string tension packs and few 7 string or 8 sets.

    Gauge for Schecter 7 string 9,5-44 + 60 tuned to A# standard. NYXL
    Fender Telecaster 9-40 BT NYXL tuned to E standard

    The spelling choices in the thread title are top shelf. I like drop tunnings with extra heavy theards.

    This has got to be one of the most crooked posts ever. Automatically reading it in a Borat voice didn't help.
