    Anyone have any idea what kind of strings Katunich is using on the song DRIVE?

    He does a slide that pretty much rules out round wounds. They must be flats or half rounds. I'm looking for the sound he has and I ain't gettin it from these rounds, they are just too damn raspy.

    I'm also still looking for a source for some big gauge strings .150 - .168 .

    I doubt Dirk Lance (!) uses anything but roundwounds.
    I listened to Drive very closely and found nothing you can't do with roundwounds.
    You might have to practice more on your fretting technique.
    But Dirk seems to roll back the highs on his amp quite a bit, so this might help too.

    I think he's endorsed by Dean Markley but I'm not sure what specific type he uses. His tone sounds like roundwounds to me.
