I use Ernie Ball strings on all my guitars: I use .10-.46 for standard E tuning, .10-.56 for 7-string standard, .09-.52 for ASP 7-string tuning (the guitars are basically tuned up a whole step with a drop B: 1F# – 2C# – 3A – 4E – 5B – 6F# – 7B) and we add a .70 for the 8th string tuned to F#.more
Tried many strings, these are the perfect set for me. The thick low strings really shine with power chords, but the thing high strings allow me to play faster. Last a long time as well
These strings are really good for an overall bright or deep sound. The variety allows for a lot of power within the strings and gives the player a lot more freedom to explore different sounds on a guitar.
These sound great on my flying V guitar, which is actually a cheap Harmony that I painted and modded with DiMarzio humbuckers. That thing wails, and these strings add some nice beef to the power chords. Definitely recommended for all sub-genres of Rock.
