: hey guys, : What electric guitar strings have the longest life? I swear I am sick of ernie ball and blue steel, I have been using them forever and they just cant withstand my whammy bar and sweeps. Any ideas? : Thanks! Try Pyramids, best quality Nickel there is, you cant find them in stores, go to juststrings,com, about 11 bucks a set but last much longer than anything I tried, and sound better than Elixirs, theres no plastic coating. They’ve been around in Europe many years, the Beatles used them in the early days. They are very flexible, so if you use 10’s, I would go to 11’s. Will never go back to anything else.
