Hello all. Question for those with HB guitars (piezo equiped)
What strings do you use? I just got a new Hollowbody II (why am I wasting time online?) and I know from the hang tag that is is strung with 11 gauge strings. This was one of my biggest unanswered questions in terms of what is the max gauge that the HB can take. I play 11's on my LP (DR Pure Blues) and I have a stockpile of them and hoped that I could use the same strings on the HB (I am glad I don't have to drop to 10s). However, I need a wound G for the piezo. That is 100% acceptable to me as I actually prefer that, but that means I need to start another stockpile of string type.
The PRS gauge 11 strings on the website do not go into detail if they are pure nickel or maybe even chrome plated or anything else.
Though by description they seem to be like Ernie Balls which in the past I have had bad experiences. Sounds fine stock, but maybe there is better.
So my options that I see:
Dean Markley (though a bit heavier on top, I don't want to mess with the setup any more than I have to)
D'Addario Chromes (not as bass heavy as the DM, but more treble heavy and I have no real experience with chrome)
D'Addario Ni Wound (closest to OEM spec for size)
I'm thinking of starting with the DA nickel first, but I would like to know what the PRS strings are, because it is on the warm side already.
What do you use?
Thanks in advance.
