I actually started one of these to find out what people use a while ago, anyways I personally use Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottom 10 - 52's and I change them roughly every 2 to 3 weeks depending whether I break a string, then again my Hamer has had the same strings for like 3 months so depends man.

I change mine at least once a month, and I prefer GHS 11 - 70's.
but i'm open minded, I tend to swing around in the string area.

I usually change mine every two weeks... but sometimes I'm pushed a little further if I can't make it into town or am stretched for cash.

Two weeks, or as necessary. I love the feel and sound of new strings, but I try to make them last while I can, even if they start to lose tuning real easy. I use GHS boomers TNT for electric, and Martin SP Medium for acoustics. The heavier the string, the brighter the tone. A little harder to play, but it's worth it. I use Ernie Balls when nothing else is available. I really don't know that much about the higher end strings, but I'd like to look at why theyre supposed to stand out.

They check intonation and stuff. You won't need to do it regularly really. Maybe once in a while if you feel something is a bit off.

I change mine every 6 months. Maybe 4. I use GHS progressive 9-42. These strings are good for fast playing like in thrash/punk/progressive.

Yeah... but after a while they wind up sounding dull... which you can make up for with EQ. I find taking a bit of treble and presence helps stop the stringings sounding so bright when they're just on.

I use D'Addario "Regular Light Gauges." They're .010-.046. Very nice strings that I change roughly every two weeks to once a month.

well i play guitar in winter drumline, so basically before every competition during the winter...which is basically every week. And during the summer i usually change them every 2 months during non winter season. as for my favorite kind it depends how much money i have.
if i have almost no money, i usually buy some cheap 2.00 strings that i cant remember.
if i have an alright amount of money, ill buy ghs boomers extra light gauge 9-42
otherwise, i'll buy ernie ball 10-46 (regular slinky/custom gauge)

i normally change mine when they just become knackard, or ar just unplayable.
and my usual strings are rotosound pinks which comes with a free extra 1st, which is very useful. usually when i change the whole batch i fast frett them after and clean the neck before i stick on another batch

i use the same as Crunch D'Addario Regular Light Gauge 10-46

davidbahar has a great point about extending the life of your strings.
clean hands don't gunk up strings. i've had strings only last a week
because of this. if the strings don't gunk up,you can play them for
months like others have.
