I recently swytched to Ernie Ball Cobalts and they last at least twice as long as their regulat strings. They keep their brightness and tunability extremeny well. I wipe down the strings when I am finished playing with a thing called The String Cleaner and that's it.

Fender and Marshall Amps.
Various effects, small amps, and other gear easily purchased at almost any guitar emphorium.

This story reminded me of a friend of mine who got a beaten-up piano from me. He is a real tinkerer, so He decided to restore it on His own. When He got ready with the finish - not being a musician - came to me asking where to get strings, how much they cost, how to install them, etc. I've answered His questions, and He said: oh no, that's too expensive, what if He just installs simple steel wires from a metalware shop...
