    What strings would you say gave you the lowest tone/biggest bottom end. I'm looking for a growl/roar that is extremely deep, any recommendations?

    I have GHS boomers on right now, they gotta whole lotta low end IMHO, beware this is only my opinion and you will probably get conflicting opinions:confused:

    Good luck in your search, I am in the same boat:help: :p

    Knucklehead "Chunky" Doublewides. They have a .120 E, maybe a bit less, but they will basically make people crap their pants with how punchy they are. DR makes some nice coated ones, too.

    Knucklehead seems to be a very obscure/small brand.

    But their strings are fantastic!!! Chunkys sound great on my Geddy and Fattys sound great on my '73.
    if you are looking for the Low growl "**** your pants" tone.. Get the Chunkys.. They will not disapoint.

    I'd love to take a look into them, but I can't find a single retailer.

    I wasn't insisting they were poor quality due to the small manufacturer, I'm just saying it's hard to find them.
