Best strings for a DR 100?
Posted 07 January 2012 - 09:48 PM
Had the Epiphone DR 100 for 3 to 4 years now and miraculously I've never had to change the strings out... Until 1st string snapped on my hand the other night. Done my research on what gauges Epiphone uses on their acoustics, and know what to look for, but when comparing that to the sets of strings sold in 6 packs, I'm at a loss. Either two strings match and the rest are off by 0.1 or 4 match, but the other two are off by about 0.4 and I know I don't want to change that much. I honestly like the sound the original factory strings produce, so I want to try and keep the gauges as close as possible if not exact.
So my questions are::
What's the best Brand for strings for any Epiphone Acoustic? Have two different Acoustics and the strings on the second might need changing soon as well.
Should I get Extra Light, Lite, or Medium, or other?
Am I going to have to get individual strings to keep the gauges right or is there a full set that matches them?

Have you tried Gibson J 200 12/53's. On my ej 200 they are the best that I have tried.
