I've been in search of the "perfect string" for my Ibanez SRX300. I've narrowed my search down to D'Addario ProSteels and Ernie Ball Power Slinkys, tuned BEAD. I put on the Ernie Ball's after a year of not playing them (they previously only had a few hours of play on them) and I was surprised at how good they sounded, even after laying in the case for a while. The Ernie Ball's seemed to have a good tone too them even though they were old and I like their sound out of the box as well. On a recommendation from Jason at BSO, I picked up a set of ProSteels. I advised him that I'm playing heavier stuff like Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie so a more aggressive string like a ProSteel seemed like a good choice. I like the ProSteel sound but I'm getting a little more finger noise and a tad bit more "zing" out of it, which I guess is the nature of the stainless steel. I'm just having a tough time deciding on the two. I know tone is subjective and that string choice is as well, but am I missing out on something by going for one over the other here? I'm kinda leaning towards the Ernie Balls SLIGHTLY...am I crazy?
