I've seen a lot of people raving about Elixirs, but haven't tried them yet. For my electrics I've decided Gibson Vintage or Bright Wires sound and feel right to me. I recently tried a set of DR's and get no bass response out of them, so back to the Gibsons. I have tried many many acoustic strings both for my Gibson and Epiphones and nothing sounds as good as Ernie Ball Earthwoods. I still try other strings from time to time but mostly it confirms my opinions about the ones I like best.
