strings are now 11-48 on my strat and paul. the paul could go even heavier ( ie. 13s) with its shorter scale.
I have a beater strat that has 9-42s, and its tuned drop d, I don't play that too much though, maybe I can put the bigger strings on that with the same tuning when I get the cash
i'm trying to hit the strings near the bridge now for a more metal rhythm sound,
so the yellow and blue dunlops help me with that
off topic-I put 5 springs on my strat, so I don't know if that is discouraging me from using the trem bar,
but it feels good, kind of an overreaction to the wimpy 2 spring setup Fender gave it
