    I am new to the string terminology so be easy on me. I'm really trying to find the best sounding string. I play with two very loud punk rock guitar players. I need to hold down the low end and cut thru their ruckus. I play a Gibson ripper thru an SVT2 and looking for a mean set of strings. What is roundwound? I put a set of rotosounds on and I like them, but not sure on gauge I should use.
