Thread Name: How heavy are your strings?
Subject: How heavy are your strings?
Was wondering what other folks have used in the way of very heavy strings on their guitars, and why. Even though I use Elxir Lights on my Tacoma Parlor (huge sound, plays like butter), I've used a variety of thicknesses on my resonator. Still looking for the perfect sound. Any suggestions?

Also, just went to 14's thru 58's on my Telecaster, which I play thru the bass side of a 70's era Bassman 70 amp. I can just barely bend a full step at the 12th fret on the high E string, but it's getting easier. Gives me great tone, very fat, and for blues, it's the rhythm guitar from hell. (That's a good thing *G*) My calluses are growing nicely too.

How about the rest of you?
