    10 - 13 - 17 - 26 - 36 - 46

    Whatever brand comes out of the gigbag, lotsa generics
    I've never noticed a difference. Wipe them down with rubbing alcohol to get the snap back.
    I hardly ever break strings anymore after installing my graphite string saver saddles.

    D'Addario for my guitars (.010-.052) and Rotosound for the basses, those are ones I seem to break the least...

    I like D'Addario 10s but I like to swap out the number 10 string for an 11. It sounds louder and plays better when I use my slide.

    I really like to use Fender's strings on my 12 string acoustic. They give a really nice sound

    I like Eernie Ball Super Slinky for my bass guitars.

    They last for ages and all you have to do is boil them up in pan of water to rejuvinate them every couple of months, and Hey presto it's like new strings again.
