    The best strings I've ever used at the moment are the Galli strings, just perfect.
    Or D'addario exl, nickel possibly.

    Then use those! :D

    What gauges? On my six string, I use a very light gauge set (Status Graphite double ball ends, FWIW) - 120-95-75-55-35-25. If I wanted to get the same feel in DADGC tuning, I'd first try 95-75-... to see how it felt and, if the low D seemed a bit loose, I'd try a 100 in it's place.
