What brand of guitar strings are the best?

What kind/brand of strings should you get for your guitar? You ask 10 guitarists you'll get 10 different answers. There's a zillion brands and a zillion options within each. I get asked this VERY often at our music store. It's like pizza or subs. Of course there is some quality differences but a lot of it is taste. They just have a little different tone from one brand to another based on their string. Now thicker strings provide a thicker tone though and thinner strings are easier to play and bend etc. But start with a good brand like D'addario, SIT, Ernie Ball, DR etc. and keep the pack in your case. Next time try another set or if you love those you know exactly what to get (or not get) when you go. Check out strings here!
